Transfering from Phoenix School of Law to U of A or ASU Law

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Feb 13, 2013 7:28 pm

I'm curious to know if ASU Law or U of A Law consider the different Letter Grade curve that Phoenix School of Law has when considering potential transfer studen? I know that PhoenixLaw is on a C-scale where the other two are on a B-scale.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most schools don't care what the curve is. It's all normalized by your class rank. you probably need top 10%.

dont go to school with the intentions of transferring up. Especially with a C curve. YOu need to maintain above a 2.0 to be eligible ot continue on, so if you are below median ( C is median), then not only can you not transfer out, you failed out.

IDK if school look at the curves, or just see GPA. Regardless, the rule of thumb on here is that to transfer up you need to be above median ( like top 33% or better), so keep that in mind.
its always easier to retake the LSAT than to take a semester's worth of law school finals. ( and awhole lot cheaper too!)
