I used to not think so, but judging by the fact that GULC clearly uses transfers to make up for budget shortfalls then then it very well may be.


So someone in the top 5% at a T1 might have something to worry about?

No. The only worry is that you'll lose $2000 in deposits to GULC because you're likely to be accepted at CCNH

T2 3.807 Here

Do I need to send a transcript directly to GULC, or will it go through LSAC the same way as with the 1L apps? The application requirements page didn't specify.

Maybe. They told me it didn't matter when I called them.

Mine was the same way for a few days and just showed up on the checklist yesterday. Now I'm just waiting on my certification form to clear.

Ok perfect thanks. I figured it was just a lag on their part.

Likely 'tagging' the post so it's easy to return to it.

is it more difficult to get in EA than RD? and if so, how much harder? or is the criteria the same?

T60 #1 3.92

Same, I wonder how long it takes LSAC to process it, since I figure the one sent from my UG should have gotten to them this week.

Hopefully not too long. I don't think they should be as swamped as they are in the fall. Supposedly max is supposed to be 2 weeks.

Checking in! T50 with a little over a 4.0. My school doesn't rank but I think that puts me in the top 5-10%. Good luck everyone!

Good chance.


Yeah, should be a lock from what I've read. You should aim higher--as in NYU is probably a very good shot too.

FWIW I was GW top 15% at 3.65.

Check out the table of median transfer GPAs on The Legal Whiteboard (not that GPA is overwhelmingly useful though...):

Anyone else applying as a safety net? It's an expensive one but I could really use a 'slight' relief of the pressure from this semester's finals.

Yea. I'm at a T20 so GULC isn't much of a step up. For me personally though it wouldn't be horrible b/c I could live at home and save the COL.

I did last year and the relief was awesome. That much easier to kill finals when you have admission in hand.

Went "complete" this morning -- although I believe I am still EA, all of my materials should have arrived prior to the deadline.
