Transferring Schools: Need Advice

Postby yankees123 » Thu Jul 12, 2012 1:36 pm

Went to a Tier 3 for 1L, did well (top 17% of my class and a 3.4 GPA). Accepted at Rutgers-Newark and Seton Hall (got $15k/yr as a transfer scholarship but have to keep a 3.0 gpa). Also waiting to hear back from fordham. Thoughts/advice?

I'm from New Jersey and wondering why your two options are both there. Odd.

hey if you don't mind me asking how did you get the scholarship from both schools? I am in the top 1% and I am thinking about Rutgers but they didn't offer me any money.

How much do you pay at your current school? Do you have any idea of the top 15% of graduates can actually get jobs? Is it the type of job you want to do?

This is hard because the schools you may xfer into aren't that great and are pretty expensive. Your grades will be wiped, and there is a chance you'll get medianpwned at your new school. I think median at Rutgers/Seton Hall may be worse than top 17% at a T3. But who knows.

Depends on the TTT, but most likely I'd transfer
