Yeah sorry for the misspell. Hey Patrick did you transfer from OU to UT? Mind sharing your stats, experience?

(assuming based on your TAR).

Didn't transfer to UT, but I went there for UG and therefore hate all things OU. Ended up with several transfer options (including T14), but chose to stay at OU so I could put money toward an LLM.


What?

Sorry, but you know you want an LLM for a certainty?

If you really want to teach or something, you should have transferred to the ivy league.

Or, you know, an LLM in Tax from NYU.

Never claimed it was a golden ticket, but I'm not worried.

Cheers to you man. End up at Caplin or Ivins and have a great life. Just avoid deals-based tax.

Genuine question: Thoughts on why I should avoid deals? I worked a bit last summer on an IPO and an RTM spin-off and kinda enjoyed it...

Campos reports that FSU students rebelled and made the school separate their homegrown GPA's from the newbies GPA. Based on that, I think they may graduate with two GPAs....?

By the way FSU had like 74 transfers in, 3 transfers out, and had a class of 300 or so. So like 25% of the 2Ls are transfers.


Generally transferring outside of the T14 is worthless for 90% of people (and the other 10% need to be somewhere geographically).

It depends on the firm actually. Deals work can be brutal for tax attorneys because it is so tied to the M&A/Capital Markets group's schedule, but I'm just comparing it to boutique tax practice. It is probably no worse than doing M&A at a V10 firm

From what I can tell (knowing ppl who applied to transfer from ND), GULC does not actually reject people in the transfer process. It's more of an open registration, like community college.

The big wall seems to be at the T6, which I guess makes sense, given that that's where your employment prospects really shoot up.
