Single Semester Transfer Schools

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 08, 2018 6:03 pm

Grades just came out today and I did very well. I go to a T1 but am considering transferring to a T-14 with hopes of landing a better chance at a big law job in a big East-coast city (N.Y., D.C., Boston). I am going to put in the work this semester to try to keep my grades up and transfer to a top schools, but I was curious if anyone knew of any schools in the T-14 that accept transfers based on only their 1L Fall semester. Thanks in advance.

A simple search would've answered this for you. UChicago and Georgetown.

Also worth noting, from Chicago:
All applicants accepted under the Early Decision program will be required to submit a law school transcript containing their final first-year law school grades. All offers of admission made under the Early Decision transfer program are contingent upon the Law School's receipt of a final first-year law school transcript demonstrating consistent performance and successful completion of one full year of study at an ABA-accredited law school.

I had a friend who almost had a T20 go back on an EA decision when they dropped pretty significantly in the spring semester. It was no joke. School let him in at the end, but it was a close call.
