Transfer Q

Postby senunit » Wed May 18, 2011 12:54 am

Hey guys, I was wondering if applying early for a transfer is as beneficial/necessary as was applying early in your original apps to law school? I noticed many TLSers already applying to transfer, while most schools accept apps until a later date. I looked into Arrow's thread on transfers and notices that he applied AFTER his grades were released (which is presumably early June, at the earliest). So whats the consensus here? Apply early, or wait for grades? Thanks.

The earlier the better. Many schools explicitly state this. The timeframe is very condensed and some forms may take awhile to process. For example, my school has to send over a form indicating that I have no disciplinary action taken against me. My school takes up to 4 weeks to process this form. So if I didn't request it until after the beginning of June, it may arrive too late to make the deadline. As always, the earlier the better
