Applying to CLS, NYU, Penn. Deferred GULC EA.
5 Years WE (non-legal, but substantive work).
Does writing onto current school's LR make a difference for transfer admission? Why would they care?
I know it is a bit speculative without final numbers, but do you think CLS/NYU care about WE? And what was the approximate "cutoff" for T2s at your C/N?
T2 is a big range. Are you talking 51 or 99?
I don't know that Writing onto LR makes much of a difference (maybe small - something like getting an A in LRW). But GPA and school rank are the biggest factors.
Don't sweat GULC EA. I was deferred EA and accepted in the first wave of June. (anecdotally, it seems as tho EA was for mostly T1ers).
C/N took a number of people, some with 1-5 years of WE, some K-JD.
Most at C/N in the T2 are within top 5%, those from T1 can be within top 10%, and from within T14 possibly top 25% (I think).
You might also want to throw an app at Cornell, and Michigan. Concentrate on the T4-T10, with GULC and Cornell as safeties (if there can be such a thing for transfers - its not as clear as regular admissions).
Also - FYI, I was 3.88 at a T2 on 3.1 curve. Depending on your curve, you could be underestimating class rank.
