Transfer from T2 --> Columbia/NYU?

Postby GGMcSwift » Wed Jun 10, 2015 12:37 am

I currently go to a T2 in the NY/NJ metro area on a full ride. I have a 3.86 GPA. My school doesn't rank but I believe this is top 2-4%ish (B curve, top 10% is 3.60ish). I'd like to stay in the area and so Columbia or NYU are my only options if I want to transfer.

So the two obvious questions are what do you think my chances are of both/either and if I can get in, is it worth it to give up a full ride + law review + clinics/TAs/bonds with profs and friends etc to take on 100k+ more in debt.

I don't have specific goals career wise. I'm interested in many different areas. No interest in academia and only interested in clerking if it would increase my earning potential. I really just want to have a nice paying job whether it's big law or anything else, and want to do whatever will maximize my chances of not being a poor lawyer who wishes he didn't go to law school.

Can answer more specific questions if anyone needs more info.
