They ask very standard questions like why do you want to transfer. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Turn around time from file complete to decision is about 48 hours. So if you did not request an interview, you should have a decision fairly soon (assuming your file is complete).

I don't think my stat is a no brainer acceptance, but I would prefer to withhold it for now. Though I am from Indiana, so maybe that helped.

They emailed me after I first noticed it on the status check. Snail mail came a few days after the email.

Application is almost complete for ND, so I am just checking in. I did my interview about three weeks ago, and now I am just waiting on my final transcripts. :)

I am at a Tier 1, in the top 35% of my class. Not the best numbers by any stretch. I really just wanted to get out of the city where my law school is located. (Maybe that gives it away) I applied to WUSTL, UCLA and ND. I really love ND's campus...and I'm a Catholic boy. :)

You're most likely in at both WUSTL and ND, I can't speak to UCLA since I did not apply there.

WUSTL vs. ND is a hard choice I am facing right now.

Depends on what you're looking for...South Bend has its definite pros and cons... i had a couple of friends go there undergrad and i've been to visit as well, but I think the kicker for me would be the larger alumni and network base for ND. WUSTL certainly has a respectable law base, but I think the ND brand might stand out more on a national level IMO

That, and being from Indiana, I'm biased toward ND as well, though WUSTL does have a very reputable law school too.. Decisions decisions.

Agreed! ND has the name recognition, and I feel like I meet people all the time from Notre Dame Law, even in California. It is a hard decision. For me, it will come down to finances.

If you look at school data on LSAC, it has the transfer in amount from last year I think. I'm actually at Notre Dame right now looking at apartments. I think I am leaning ND more and more.

Re: California, of course UCLA will be your best bet, but ND has a strong west coast presence too if UCLA doesn't work out.

I'm also looking at ND versus WUSTL. But I haven't heard back from ND yet. I really liked both campuses.
