I had a feeling bad curves could kill transfer admissions and this makes me think so even more (unless someone else ITT wants to discount my theory). Our curve is somewhat high, so I think it helps.

Congrats! So is it gonna be UMich or GULC?


Waiting on Penn before making a further decision, but I'd probably pick Mich over GULC since I want NY/NJ, Mich is substantially cheaper, and transferring is basically all about prestige whoring :lol:.


Plus, you'd practically be a shoo-in for U. Mich. L. Rev., since you've had two practice tries at a substantially similiar competition. :P

Believe this is correct, based on how my cycle has gone thus far with an unfriendly curve, though I'm still waiting on Penn/CLS/NYU. I don't know why they put any basis in GPA though. Rank is the only common denominator for transfers.

WE in transfer admissions >>>>>> WE in regular admissions.

Congrats keg!!! Maybe the WE really did help (since I have less than none and was quickly rejected). Awesome news.

Only in my personal situation (want NYC/NJ - btw, Mich people who have Simplicity access: is Lowenstein Sandler doing OCI there???). Someone who wants CA or Chicago could easily defend going to Mich over Penn.

:lol:. I barely did anything on the GULC packet... except waste a ton of paper.

I have five years post-undergrad work and heavily tied it to my career goals in my PS.
But you got my dream school, so don't complain :P :lol:.

hey, can any chicago people help me/us out and post a little bit about your OCI? even if you don't want to put the whole list, it would be really nice if you could say x number of firms from boston, x from chicago, x from new york, etc. thanks!

I think the real question in regards to CLS is, when was the last date to apply last cycle? If it was 7/15 (like it is this year) then potentially people have been made aware of their disposition (but just aren't part of the TLS community). CLS states, on the application status checker, their admission process is rolling, so the 15th should be irrelevant either way...but yes, please god, someone hear from them today!

No you're right, NYU's deadline was the 1st. But that was to submit the "initial application" while the 15th was the last date to submit "supporting documents", i.e. LOR, transcripts, etc....
