Transfer: Upper T2 to T14

Postby sanpiero » Sun Jan 10, 2010 1:13 pm

Anyone transfer from (upper) T2 to T14? If so, what was your rank?

Even if you don't have personal experience with such a transfer, any idea what rank would allow one to transfer from upper T2 to:

UCLA?
GULC?
Northwestern?
Boalt?
CCN?
HYS?

UCLA? top 10%
GULC? top 10%
Northwestern? top 10%
Boalt? top 5-10%
CCN? top 5%
HYS? top 1%


These are rough estimates.

Please note these ranks are what would make you "competitive."

By that I mean, you could rank top 1% of your class and get shut out of all of them (due to competition).

Those seem reasonable. However, Boalt and UVA rejected a lot of people who got into higher ranked schools last year.

It seems as though I remember NU saying at some point that they would be accepting fewer transfer students than in years past due to the state of the economy. I believe that they accepted fewer this year because of the introduction of the AJD program and not wanting their 2L class to exceed 300.

And, more specifically, the Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/transferapps/

Data points may give some hope into upper T14...

Yes. This year NU cut the transfer class by a third.

Hmmmm..... I transferred from a T4 school to a T20 school, and I was top 8%. Was a shoe in at a T14, until they coldly rejected me after 4 months on a bloody waiting list.
