Title says it all. Haven't sent anything yet. Worth it or am I throwing money away?

My instinct is that Boalt may be a waste. But if you are only looking at three schools, is it really cost-prohibitive to apply to all three?

I'm applying to some other lower ranked and non CA schools too.

Where does the third tier end and the fourth tier begin? Is that like near the #100 spot?

100 is the end of TT, TTT/TTTT barrier is considerably deeper

Instead of posting a new thread, I thought I'd try to see if anyone could speculate on my chances in this one, as my situations is a little similar.

TTT/TTTT CA top 18% to TT (USD, USF, Santa Clara, Hastings). No considerable softs to speak of, but I did AMJUR one course.

Anybody with experience that can help?

In regards to being cost prohibitive, schools don't take fee waivers. And by my guess, I might have a 2% chance at hitting 1 of the 3, but I would have to apply to all 3, so thats $250 right there.

I've looked around yahoo transfer apps. Its pretty spotty for T3/4 apps, I haven't seen anyone with 7% ever get in. And Boalt in particular is known for favoring early apps, to which I haven't sent anything yet. So basically, just looking for confirmation that it would be a waste of money.

My guess is you would get USD or Hastings and maybe both. Santa Clara and USF should be gimmees, but nothing is certain for T3/4. However, I don't think Santa Clara or USF would be worth it. I don't even know if USD or Hastings would be big enough of a jump to make it worth it. It would depend on your scholly situation. Obviously, if you're not on a scholarship or its pretty low, and/or your school doesn't offer you anything, you transfer, but otherwise its a tough call.

i say throw an app at ucla/usc but understand those are reaches.

boalt is probably totally out of the question. i'm from hastings and you already need top 5-10% to get into boalt from here.
