Transfer or not?

Postby bml1986 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:27 pm

I was accepted to GW last week and was wondering what ppl's opinions are on what I should do. I currently attend a T3 school where I will not be on law review and am pretty open to working in most legal markets. I know many ppl have posts similar to this, but I am having a hard time making a decision. I do have some aspirations of working at a big firm, but it won't be heartbreaking if I do not.

left out the most important part - do you have a scholarship at your current school? if so, how much?

If you're getting a 0-50% scholarship at your current school, definitely transfer.

If you're getting a 50-100% scholarship at your current school, still probably transfer.

how do transfer students at GW fair? there is a chance you aren't really improving your opportunities enough to warrant giving up the money.
