Reasons for wanting to transfer

Postby SKlei » Tue Jan 24, 2012 8:00 pm

What do most people write for this in their application? I mean I could write they offer more courses and clinics, but one of the main reasons I am looking to transfer is for employment reasons & the schools I want have better reputations.

I wrote about my goals and how the new school would help me achieve them, as well as the unique addition to the student body that I'd be.

I think it's kinda useless to write much about "why transfer" unless you have some particularly interesting reason for it. Just show them that you have a goal you are working toward, how being at their school can help you get there and point out that unlike those other faceless applicants out there you will be a unique addition to their 2L class.
