I live in the Chicago area so I will be staying at home so I won't have anything to pay for except school/books. I hope to work in Chicago as well. Was Kent a reasonable choice for me then?
I hope to do corporate law and I know someone who can 99% guarantee me an in house business law internship. They can't obviously guarantee me a job because they work in a different department but I figure not a bad start..
Just wondering what are my chances of being able to transfer into NW after 1L? (I start this fall). It was my freshman GPA in college that hurt me in the selection process. I had under a 3.0 my first year in school and I'll be graduating around a 3.6 so I turned it around but I couldn't fix my GPA in time for applications.
I know I don't have numbers yet of where I rank in the school and what not, but I know with my study habits that I've seriously improved the last 3 years I will put in a lot of time and effort. My question basically is would the transfer be a good idea and what would I have to do to be able to transfer.
This forum is for current law students seeking advice on applying to transfer from one law school to another. As such, the following rules are hereby in place:
1) 0Ls should not be posting questions here.
If you're a 0L who wants advice about anything from current law students, including how transferring works, then you want to go to this forum set up just for you: viewforum.php?f=4
0Ls are welcome to be here, to read and to make appropriate comments, but read note #3 below before you comment.
2) 1Ls (and 0Ls!), do not ask about transfer odds or possibilities before you have grades.
And don't think about transferring before you even go to school. To transfer from Kent to NU you would need to be in the top 10%. I don't know if Kent still does this, but my friends just graduated in May and they section stacked making it hard to be in the top 10%. If you would rather go to NU, retake the LSAT. Don't plan on transferring entering law school. It rarely works out
