Transfer to UT

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jun 04, 2017 3:14 pm

I attend a school in the range of ND,BU,Emory and I'd like to transfer to UT.

The 2016 ABA transfer data lists UT's 25th percentile 1L GPA as 3.34. That is my exact my gpa. Is it worth it to apply? Or will I most likely be rejected since UT moved up to 14 and I've heard that they will be accepting less transfers.

Transfer admission questions are difficult to answer because no one really knows what specific criteria law schools are looking for. But from my experience (UT transfer myself), I think you have a decent shot at getting in. Although I don't know if their plans have changed drastically regarding transfer policies. It seemed to me that UT was pretty willing to take transfers from peer(ish) schools with decent grades.

On the question of whether it's worth it to apply, absolutely. If you want to attend UT with the goal of working in Texas then why would you not? Obviously there are other concerns to think about should you be accepted but you can deal with those when they arise. If you are serious about potentially accepting admission to UT then I would get an app together just so you won't regret not even trying.

I appreciate the feedback! You're right, I might as well apply since I want to be in Texas and would like to practice transactional law. I regret not building great relationships with my core class professors for letters of rec purposes, but I'll try to get the best letters of rec possible.
