Transfer Opportunities EA/ED

Postby jarofsoup » Fri Jan 20, 2012 10:33 pm

I am considering to ED to Chicago or EA to GULC or GWU for transfer applications. My first semester GPA is a 3.77 at a upper T2(would be with in the top 10%). Do you think these options are with in grasp? I am a bit worried about repeat performance next semester but this is primarily because I worry a lot.

Advice is appreciated. My career goals are big law(or mid law) or a USAO position.

I have to imagine you're out at Chicago, unless you're well within the top 10%

GW just started EA this year. I think OP has a good shot at GW EA but GW expects that Spring grades will be at least B average. Might as well send out apps to the other two just to see what happens.

Top 10% was around a 3.6 last year we are un-ranked as of right now.

Oh thanks for this. Was interested in them. They apparently have two transfer pages on their website, one with nothing about early action. Dumb. http://www.law.gwu.edu/Admissions/apply/Pages/transvis.aspx

I think even top 10% at Fordham would be less than 50-50 for UChi.

I was top 5% last year at a T2 and was flat out rejected from Chicago ED.

Not sure if you know, but any idea how a top 1% (3.9) at a T25 would fair?

Yup, got into a good amount of lower T14 schools. I'm at Michigan now.

Very good chance in my opinion. I would probably hold off, try to repeat performance, and shoot for YHS RD though.

A little bit different range, but I was top 1% at a T-30 and out at YHS, In at UChicago RD

Negative, I guess it's actually a T-35 now too. My mistake.

Does it make a difference if you try to transfer from a full time JD program to a part time JD program at GULC?
