T4 to top 50?

Postby Codebrew12 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 2:39 am

I am currently at a good t4. It actually has employment statistics that beat many T1 schools. I however have been working with admissions at the University of Colorado and they think I have a great chance of being able to transfer to their school. Is it worth giving up a scholarship/ law review/first year grades and rank to transfer from a tier 4 to a top 50 school?

Difficult to answer. Do you have good Colorado ties and is your current law school in a market where you have no ties? Since your target school is highly regional, this is something to take into account.

Also, what is your rank?

These details will help posters give you thoughtful answers.

Something fishy is going on with the reporting numbers. My old T3 has REALLY close employment numbers to my T14, according to this chart.

Also, I doubt GWU is that high.
