Hahaha I know. I don't mean to be a huge jerk but I would like to know if there have been rejections. Could anyone answer that?

T2 (60's) 3.4, 17% East coast, from Midwest.

Minnesota: Accepted via phone May 12th (that was suprising and nice to know so early)
Wisconsin: Application complete last week. (needed both sem. grades.)

I'm a Wisconsin resident and could pay cheap ($<19k/yr) tuition AND not take the bar if I went to WI (assuming I get in, and graduate) but is it worth passing up on MN?? Looking for opinions.

Indifferent towards where I would work ultimately.

thanks!

Finally got some news today...still anxiously awaiting all the other schools:

top 9% TTTT, Law Review (I was PT so I was actually on law review for a year)

Northwestern - Complete (6/28)
Loyola - IN (7/12)
DePaul - Complete

Emory - Complete (7/1)
UGA - Rejected (7/8)
Georgia State - Complete (7/5)

Really hoping to hear from Emory soon. Pretty sure Northwestern is a long shot.


UPDATE: In at Emory today! Super excited about that.

WI and MN are peer schools 100%. In state tuition + diploma privilege are no-brainers.

T2 55-65, top 3%

UPenn: Accepted & Attending

Georgetown RD: Wait listed (Withdrawn)
Boalt: Rejected
Columbia: Withdrawn

Penn was my absolute top choice :D . Tip for next years applicants: Apply broader than I did/ throw in a safety or prepare to stress out the entire summer. Transfer admission is truly unpredictable and seems to be getting more competitive with ITE.


Congrats! As someone who is waiting on all of those schools (except Boalt), I am extremely jealous!

T2... top 10%... VA Resident

UVA - Rejected
GULC - Waitlisted (Withdrew)
Penn - Rejected
Alabama - Accepted with $ (Withdrew)
Villanova - Accepted (Withdrew)
Boston College - Accepted (Withdrew)
Notre Dame - Accepted (ATTENDING and very excited about it)


I can honestly say its hard spending so much money on applications (again) but it is worth it, especially during the transfer process where anything can happen. I would say my cycle went as most would have predicted, but now I will never second-guess/wonder.

Very excited and grateful to be attending Notre Dame in the Fall... good luck everyone.
