I want to transfer to Fordham because of their IP program and the fact that my entire family and fiance live in the NY/NJ area. I am an engineering major (patent bar eligible) and wrote onto law review. I was wondering if this is a long shot and if it's even worth a try.... Fordham is the only transfer app I am planning on putting in.
I would definitely give it a shot! It sounds like you are making a lateral transfer, and top 30% is generally enough. I would also mention in PS that Fordham is the only school you are applying to and emphasize the strong reasons for why you want to apply there and only there.
While I would not call top 30% a lock (top 20% would be safer), I do believe Fordham should take you.
