Possibly some dumb (T8) transfer questions from a 0L

Postby justbubbles » Fri Apr 22, 2011 5:10 pm

0L with some T6-T8 acceptances here. Please keep that in mind, thanks.

I have dome some preliminary research but nothing extensive. Here's some scattered thoughts and questions:

1. If a candidate has been dinged from School X, but starts 1L at School Y during the fall, will School X negatively look upon the transfer candidate if s/he were to apply to transfer to School X?

2. Do undergrad GPA/LSAT score(s) play any part in transfer decisions? Or is it purely on 1L grades and compelling reasons?

3. Does school quality play any part in transfer decisions? eg. What if, for example, someone transferred from Northwestern or GULC to Harvard? Obviously transferring from Stanford or Yale would put the candidate in a level of "equals" (in terms of school caliber); so, I am just wondering here.

Thanks,

Curious as to why you'd enter one T6 with intention of transferring to another.

TITCR.

Don't go anywhere planning on a transfer.

See:

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=82937 for all the info you'll probably want.

and

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=124519&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=0 just because.

The same rule goes for T6-8 as would go for any other 0L. Pick the school you would want to go to and graduate from. You shouldn't even be thinking about transferring and it's mostly worthless within the top schools unless you have some type of major geographical issue (i.e. you need to be in NorCal because of an important family situation, and didn't get into SLS/Berkeley; but got into Mich/NYU).

+1

With addendum: chances are 90% you won't have the grades to transfer.
