T20, top 15% approx, ED.

Congrats! Too bad more schools don't have ED/EA so we can all get settled early rather than scrambling in July.

Applying to HYS. Have considered applying to Columbia but I don't think I'd go if I got in. So not sure if I will.


Decided to apply to CLS. Might go if I don't get into HYS.

Well it'll be good to have another option. Are you just aiming for biglaw?

I will buy all of the CLS admits a round of drinks. However, I'm in DC until December, so it'll have to be postponed until January. :D

Yes and no. I don't particularly care about biglaw in and of itself. But I want to do sports law so biglaw will likely be necessary...or at minimum, a law degree from a very prestigious school and the alumni network that comes along with it is likely necessary. Because I don't have strong enough connections otherwise.

If I am not able to get into sports law, I probably won't stick around in biglaw. I'd rather work in a small to mid-size firm.

So happy for you! It'll be interesting to see just how much of our class leaves WUSTL.

ETA: post your stats to help others plz


Yeah, it will get interesting. WUSTL always adds an incredible number of transfers to stay in equilibrium. Throw me a text as you hear news. I'm glad most everyone trying to move up has been successful thus far.

(ED Top 20%)

Yeah I just feel bad since I feel like the preselect system screws the transfers. But yeah, things are looking good so far for people, hopefully that continues and everyone ends up better off.

I'd be giving up a big scholarship to transfer, and I think with my loquacious yet humbly charming personality I'd get a biglaw job from my current school no probs. Yet the thought of one day being dubbed a federal judge by the likes of Chelsea Clinton is too great a temptation for me to be dissuaded by mere short term financial concerns.

come to Columbia please, we're delightful folk.

That UPenn application deadline came and went very quickly. I almost missed it waiting on grades before pulling the trigger.

Scotti had to misfortune of getting to know me while I was on a sober and meditative kick, but now that that's over, if I end up at Columbia I cordially invite you, equallywrong, on a celebratory bender the minute I hit town.

Post-Transfer orientation, the transfer student organization took us out and paid for our drinks all night. So many beers.
