Okay.....I'm transferring, now what?

Postby bieberfever » Fri Jun 22, 2012 11:09 pm

Top 10% at T3 -----------------> T1 (15-25), paying sticker at both

Gave up Moot Court, Law Review, and mad connects at old school. I didn't want to practice in the area of my old school, my new school is in the area I want to practice BUT after the excitement of getting into the T1 sunk in, I realized that I'm back at square 1. I'm now the little fish in a big pond. What can I do to make myself relevant/involved? I already did the write-on (pending results) - should I just join a bunch of clubs and connect with profs? I think I might have buyer's remorse and am really worried I might have made the wrong decision...

If you were paying sticker price at a Tier Three law school located in a geographic area that you don't like, then you made the right choice by transferring to a Tier One in your preferred geographical area.

P.S. Odd that your Tier Three law school didn't make a scholarship offer to one finishing in the top 10% with law review & moot court.

I know, right? When I told them I was trying to transfer they seemed a little insulted but didn't care too much. They gave me some forms, said I might pick up 4-5k based on my GPA if I stayed, and then scooted me out the door.

From what I've heard they lowered the stips for all the scholarships they gave out at the beginning of the year so I'm guessing they don't have any more cash. I guess they're just playing the USNWR rank game and don't really care about losing people.
