a)A school that is ranked in the twenties
b)A school that is ranked in the sixties
While I greatly appreciate the school ranked in the sixties and the city, would I be shooting myself in the foot by not attending the school ranked in the twenties for transferring purposes?
I am specifically asking this question to this group since you all are in the transferring process for this wonderful school.
Would appreciate any thoughts or advice anyone has.
Please do not respond that I should go into law school being happy with the school I am attending and not think about using it to get into another law school. I know this but still would like transferring advice.
Common advice is that you should never attend a law school expecting to get good grades and transfer. Yes, you may be super smart, but it's a tough thing to bank on. If you go to the 20s school, then either you do well and you can try to transfer (and again, from a 20s school, even if you're, say, top 20% you could prob get up to GULC--as opposed to, as said, needing to be top 5% at a 60s) or, if you don't do as well as you hoped, stick it out there and still get a great degree from the 20s school. If you want more info or advice, you can PM me.
Side-bar for GULC people here: I've been doing the write-on all weekend. The cases, frankly, are very interesting, and I like the topic, but it's taking foreverrrrrrrrrrrrr
