you probz shouldnt have went if you arent comfortable graduating from the school youre at.. but regardless, unless your school curves to like a C or C- then your chances do not seem that great for a transfer.. any more information like median? top 10%?

Give it a shot ... But it probably won't work. Sucks to learn the hard way that 90% of the class is not in the top 10%. If you want a job now; you are actually going to have to kill yourself/engage in gorilla warfare to obtain one. Best of luck.

Did you do PLS 2 prep?

Did you make your own outlines?

Did you do any 0L prep?

Did you use supplements?

All of these answers would be relevant to my situation.

Also, to answer your question, no, you should not give up transferring. The only way you'll find out if you can transfer is if you try. If you don't try you definitely won't transfer.

This looks like you're stuck at your school unless you turn it around 2nd semester and get mostly A's.

Never give up. Not even after second-semester grades come out. Don't let that transfer dream die. People told you it may have been stupid to go to a school hoping to transfer and that you should have foreseen being shot down. Prove them wrong.

+1, unless that A- was in a writing course and not a substantive law course...
then again, the curve may be ridiculous...what curve is it?

What was your class ranking and are you an URM?

You realize that their username doesn't necessarily have anything to do with their real name, right?

Wait, so you're saying that Samuel L. Jackson and Mcnulty from The Wire don't really post on here?!?

You're bad at sarcasm and jokes. I assume Nony was being nice, because your assumption about "Selina" was not-very-well-hidden racism.

Congratulations, selina19! I don't know where you are planning on practicing after graduation, but I've heard Emory has extremely good job placement numbers. http://www.lstscorereports.com/national/. Best of luck with the rest of your legal career!
