Rejections

Has anyone received an outright rejection? Do schools even send those early on?

It would be interesting to know the class rank & current law school of those rejected.

Yes - I didn't intend this topic to be rude in any shape or form, but figured it'd be a nice way to gauge where each applicant stands by being able to compare to other people in the transfer process...

top 5% at a TTT, I'm sure he will get bites from other top schools...

Interesting that they gave an outright rejection...

Does anyone know if they send out rejections at the beginning or only at the end?

AKA if I don't hear from schools sooner than later, should I worry

Last year, HLS offered acceptances and rejections throughout most of mid-July and early-August. Not everyone was either admitted or rejected at once.

I've been rejected from GULC, Virginia and UC Berkeley. GULC took 15 days, Virginia took 48 hours, and UC Berkeley took about 10 days.

Top 10%, tier 2.

Still waiting on UPenn, Michigan, Chicago and IU Bloomington (I'm from IN, so I may have the opportunity returning with this one).

UMich doesn't take PT students as transfers until they've completed 1/3 of their credits... not sure where your friend was at but that might have been why.
