Stats: Northeast T4 18%, Compelling reasons to be in NYC, 3 law professors letters of recommendation.
Schools: Cardozo, Brooklyn, Fordham, St. John's, Hastings, Santa Clara, Lewis & Clark, NYLS, USF, Rutgers: Newark
Complete at:
In review at:
Waitlisted at: Brooklyn (June 29).
Accepted NYLS (July 8th), and will probably attend.
Rejected: Fordham, Hastings

I'm guessing I have been rejected at Cardozo. I thought I would get in, as I saw people with lower numbers than me get in, oh well.

I don't know about this cycle. I tend to think they have not sent any out, or very few. I have heard of people from Yahoo transfer apps board getting in with top 18% (from T4), but many seem to be in the top 10-12% and better.

T1 ~Top 40% (trying to get back to VA/DC/MD)

W&L: Accepted (Absolutely floored with their turn-around and overall helpfulness)
Catholic: Incomplete
American: Incomplete
GMU: Incomplete
Maryland: ?? (no status checker available and no general updates since I applied)
GULC: Incomplete
GW: Incomplete

As you can tell, I'm not exactly thrilled with my current school's professors or registrar's office. Finished exams beginning of May and didn't receive grades until mid to late June, so I couldn't get any documents sent out until recently. Fail.

Midwest T2/T3 (lots of movement past couple years)
~12% of class

Trying to get back to Wisconsin

Marquette- complete 6/17

I've just got a bad feeling about both of these, feel like I'm going to get stuck where I am.
