Transfer chances gone?

T4 school median gpa: 2.5-2.7 (80)
So far:
Property 90
Civ Pro 81
Torts 88
Crim 87
Con 83
Ks 83

Do I have a chance at transfering to any schools in NYC? Cardozo? I really wanted Fordham, but I'm guessing that's shot.

Edit: rank = top 18%, 27/154.

I'm guessing maybe 10-15 percent but am basing that off last year. I want anything in NYC and was considering CA if I could get Hastings.

Already applied to:
Cardozo
Brooklyn
St. John's
Fordham (was my goal)
NYLS

Surely top 10-15% at wherever you're at is better than an NYLS transfer.

I have a question did you do any 0L prep? Like read GTM or Leews?

I did some, but not either of those.

83 in contracts came in. Thought it would be higher.

Apply broadly to the TTT and lower TT schools in the areas you want to work. Put a lot of work into your apps. You might be able to snag something even at Top 20%. Good luck.

Thank you. I will be applying broadly. Just have been freaking out a bit. I thought I did much better than I ended up doing. I have 3 law professor's LORs if that helps.

you should add Hofstra to you list; it's slightly better than NYLS.

in the spirit of this thread . . . was around top 5%, now more like 6-7% (school only gives out top 10%) at T20. applications in at H, berkeley, and columbia. doomed?

Just got the rank back, 27/154, top 17.5% (or in the top 18% rounded up).

Good enough for St. John's with recommendations from a former adcomm member/professor? NYLS? Hofstra? Cardozo? Brooklyn? Rutgers? What about USF (CA), Hastings (applied there a couple times before, and showed serious interest in the school)?

Also considering Seattle U (grew up in the Pacific NW).

3 strong LoRs from professors. Legit reasons for moving to either CA or NYC (USF - undergrad in CA), spouse accepted to St. John's undergrad for NYC. Also want to practice/live in NYC.

I have not heard from any yet, other than Brooklyn. They put me on a waiting list (I didn't know they did that for transferring). Otherwise, I'm dying here hoping I get a bite somewhere. I did tailor each PS towards the school, and I am crossing my fingers I get a call/e-mail/letter before the weekend, as I hate this wait.
