Transfer Rankings

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Apr 29, 2015 4:06 pm

If my school dropped in USN rankings from the year I got accepted to the newest rankings, will that have an effect on my transfer application? Ex: 90-100 dropped to 105-110 (T2 to T3 drop)

I doubt it would matter much in the overall scheme of things, IMO.

My school has always been in the 80-90s. Just in the most recent rankings did it fall to 100s. Schools will still consider it a TT?

You've got to be at Rutgers based on your post history. No, no one cares what our ranking is and won't impact transfer admissions. Firms and other law schools view us the same today as they did a year ago and they will view us the same a year from now even if our rank were to jump to top 50 next year. It doesn't matter.
