Transfer PS

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:27 pm

Does future employability play a factor in the transfer process? Should I state that, in addition to applying to firms in large markets, that I am still going to be applying in my smaller home market (vault firms that have secondary offices here)?

I am not sure if it even matters but want to do whatever I can to crack the t14.
Thanks.

I'm not claiming to be an expert, but from a #'s standpoint it makes sense they would want transfers to get jobs. We have no effect on their GPA/LSAT stats for USNWR, but transfers absolutely effect employment data which also effects rankings.

Don't do this. Its a numbers game.

Just write about what you want to do with the law degree and how youve dreamed of X school or whatever u wrote the first time. Chances are they won't read it.

Just write a regular, boring PS that someone will skim over like the rest of it. Be vague and talked about improved employment prospects. Profit.
