Pretty poorly. I would say it definilty tracks way below what the overall school numbers are.

Don't stop mass mailing and hustling.

Be warey of success bias from students who did well. (And career services)

What's your source?

I take your silence as an admission


I don't have any hard data, and that's probably the main issue.

I feel the quoted link to 2016 figures is probably the closest numbers that are available.

I just wanted to offer a balanced anecdote. Each year there are single digit posters saying how awesome their transfer experience was. For many, the experience was rough. The only help CSO gives is information on how GULC students should bid.

I was probably a little rough on you. I think transfers should expect similar results compared to the native GULC population.

Transferred to GULC last year. One advice I would give to those of you attending GULC is to apply for a 2017 fall externship. If you want to do corporate work SEC/Finra is good, if you want to do litigation DOJ/D. Ct. is good also. If you can go into EIW with one of those externships on your resume, it would help you tremendously. Congrats to all of you who've been accepted.

Anyone know if a substantial drop will rescind the offer?

Would a couple people who have been admitted be interested in exploring the possibility of splitting a 3br apartment near school to save $?

Any deferrals from last year end up getting accepted?
Probably flushed the chances down the drain since I got bumped slightly out of 10%

Accepted a couple days ago. Some details for posterity:

T2 School

CALIs

Summer: DOJ


Good luck to all those still waiting!

Congratulations to everyone who attended up attending GULC! Quick question from this year's applicants: EA acceptance letters this year have a provision that says our acceptance could be revoked "should [our] second semester grade point average fall below 3.2." Is this new? If not, has any one had any problems with this?

Wasn't on mine either. This appears to be completely new. Maybe there was an issue with some EA acceptances last semester tanking?
