Yeah, some schools have already started accepting transfers.

Ah yes. I would say this means they likely did well, but lets be serious; GeorgeTTTown probably lets in twice as many transfers as regular applicants.

For first years going into their second semester? If true, that's really something.

But I have noticed one new person and have yet to see another I saw basically every day last semester.

I'm guessing the new people are either LLM, part-time, or graduate students.

Concerning the new student thing, I have two new faces in one of my classes. They are both transfers from some place that didn't require that class first year.

They could be 2L transfers. A lot of the transfers here have to take con law with the 1Ls because their school didn't offer it for 1L.

There's someone who had to take a leave of absence for family reasons last year and is returning to finish 1L now.

I just can't see why anyone would lie with the anonymous poll though :-/

Also, the way the poll is written is critically important; I would probably call bullshit too if it were "75%LSAT/above median" -- but by lumping @median with above median, we're talking the majority here. Also, depending upon the school, 75-80% of the class could be "median".

At/above median just makes way more sense than at/below for the caliber of schools most TLSers are attending

Agreed! Definitely not a poll critique; just an observation. I'm down.
