Question for T-14 succesful transfers

Postby lawschoolsplit1984 » Tue Mar 19, 2013 1:05 pm

Is there anyone out there on TLS that has made the transfer from a Top 25, 30 school to the T-14 (Columbia, Duke, NYU) that had a high LSAT and low (<2.5 UGPA)?

The reason I ask is, because I was accepted to a Top 25-29 school (not drastically below T-14), and I was wondering if I would have no chance of transfer because of the sub 2.5 UGPA. If there is anyone out there that succesfully transfered with a low undergraduate gpa, please let me know.

Conventional TLS wisdom: 1) Don't go to law school looking to transfer, 2) Schools don't care about UGPA or LSAT; only first-year performance or amazing softs (i.e. Nobel Prize, etc).
