George Mason Transfer App: No chance?

Postby mardilloe27 » Fri Jul 08, 2011 2:12 pm

I decided not to throw in a transfer app to George Mason University Law after reading
I believe on the ABA's transfer data sheet that last year they accepted 0 transfer students.

Anyone applying there or heard back from GMU this year?

This is part of my rejection letter:

"
George Mason has received a tremendous number of applications for a very limited number of transfer seats this year, making the process extremely competitive. As a result, we are denying a high percentage of the applicants, including many with very fine qualifications."

I don't really care though because I was accepted to a better school.

This. I was rejected a few days ago. Even though I wouldn't have gone there, it's a little comforting to know a possible reason for the ding was due to very few spots.

FWIW, I'm a VA resident who was also dinged at GMU but accepted to a few T25's.

This year might be particularly brutal for transfers to Mason. Our entering class was way to big (about 50-60 students over the norm) so they might be resistant to adding more students. Either way, they have traditionally taken very few transfers.
