what should my transfer strategy be?

Postby drmguy » Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:53 am

Top 5% at a TT and I want LA/OC. I lived all my non-law school life in OC.

I was planning on applying to Boat, UCLA, USC, UCI, Davis, and Hastings.

I was just wondering if I should expand my list to include more T14s?

I am just getting worried seeing the transfer results when people will get shut out of everything but 1 school(and that 1 not being gtown or cornell).

All of the T14's have SoCal employers at OCI. You're not going to have that at your current school.

Though, I might pause about Cornell since I heard they don't let xfers do OCI? Should look into that first.

From Camden, I'll bet anywhere looks nice. Top 5% should get you serious consideration at most from Columbia, Chicago, NYU on down. Avoid Cornell. Take USC, UCI or UCLA over Georgetown for Orange County/Southern California. If funds are limited, then UCLA, USC, UCI, Michigan & Davis.

Berkeley requires 29 credit hours for transfer eligibility. I'm sure this doesn't mean that students from schools that dish out a maximum of 28 credit hours are excluded from applying.

Does anyone have any insight with this?

Berkeley's first year curriculum is identical to my law school's first year curriculum, but my law school only gives 28 units for its first year curriculum.

I wouldn't worry about it since the curriculum is the same.

USC Just enacted an early action program for transfers. both binding and non-binding. Id get an app out.

There is something on the site about possibly waiving application costs too.

GL!

That was a 'when' not 'where,' but thanks all the same.
