Top 15% at T2, bother to transfer?

Postby J_E_M » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:55 pm

I'm not looking to transfer to a T14 school. I'm currently at a school ranked in the 60s in CA and was just looking to see if I can possibly get admitted to Hastings/Davis and maybe use that as leverage for a scholarship for next year. Any advice would be appreciated!

Not worth it. Stay where you are.

Do you think it's worth putting in a transfer app to leverage for a scholarship for next year? I am not likely to transfer to Hasting/Davis even if I get in because I want to practice in the area where my school is located. But my school only gives merit scholarships to the top 17 rising 2Ls. I had a scholarship for my 1L but will prob have to pay sticker unless I receive a private scholarship. :|

You could do it to leverage scholarships, but try to find out from upperclassmen if this works. It would suck to put in all that effort for nothing.

Yeah, I have no idea how my school treats students who put in transfer apps or whether it gives a crap if they leave (i.e., offer scholarship money). I also heard some schools make it extremely difficult for their students who put in transfer apps and request official transcripts/Dean's letter, and that scares me a little. Thanks though!
