Can being JUST outside of top 1/3 get you into FSU law?

Postby Tier4Baller » Mon Mar 05, 2012 3:47 pm

The FSU website says that you qualify to transfer if you are within the top 1/3 of your class. However, I had someone tell me that they will consider you if you are just outside of it. (ie: top 35%)

Anyone know whether this is true? Has anyone been accepted as a transfer who was NOT in the top 1/3? Or do you know anyone who has?

Thanks.

top 35% is firmly within the top 2/3

I have no idea about FSU's policies, but top 35% would be well within the top 2/3 of the class, because 2/3 of the class is 67%.

If you're asking about top 1/3 of the class, then that's different, and someone who knows FSU better should answer.

Correct me if I'm wrong... but, wouldn't top 2/3 mean top 33%? If so, how is top 35% part of the top 2/3?

So sorry... I absolutely meant top 1/3. Not top 2/3... My mistake.

I'm assuming you mean outside top 1/3 coming from a T4 school (judging by your username)?

The top 100% inclues everybody.
The top 99% includes all but the worst 1% in the class.
The top 1% includes the most elite 1%.
I hope that helps.

Oh, thank god. Somewhere, your 4th grade math teacher is weeping with relief.

And yes, I'd be coming from a T4 in FL. Rumor has it, they accepted a LOT of transfers out of my school last year, but most ended up going to UF.
