Transfer a few spots down

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Mar 11, 2015 3:58 pm

Currently at GW/USC/EMORY/WUSTL and wanted to transfer within this group. However I'm currently sitting a little below median. Any idea if I have chance moving within this group?

Non-URM. Low undergrad gpa, decent LSAT if that matters.

Thanks

Probably highly unlikely if below median.

Why do you want to transfer? Outside of relocating geographically, there's nothing to be gained by making this move and you'd be giving up any scholarship you may currently have. If you get to median or above, I wouldn't be surprised if you get in to one of them simply because you'd be paying full tuition and schools can use any extra revenue they can get these days.

FWIW, your UGPA and LSAT really don't matter in transfer applications.

Geographic reasons. Fortunately scholly isn't an issue.

Thanks for the responses
