I'm still a little unsure about the transfer option.

I feel doubtful that I'm a BigLaw guy, and considering that the big advantage (aside from the normal prestige, etc) is in the ability to get the biglaw jobs, I wonder how much sense it makes for me.

Plus, I actually like where I go to school, I have a missus who I'd have to leave if I went to school elsewhere, and I don't love the prospect of taking on a lot of extra debt.


Eh... I dunno. I should probably apply, just to keep the options open.


Do folks ever use the ability to transfer as leverage for an increase in scholarship money?

Maybe you can use your perfect GPA for an increase in Scholarship money. Plus there are outside scholarships you can apply to.

Awesome. Shouldn't be too hard to hold onto it, or is someone nipping at your heels?

Also, did your school give you money to stay?

Study tips? Strategy? Motivational posters?

For sure. I know there are some big time Tulane haters on TLS, but I've really enjoyed my time in New Orleans. I've got lots of options in the city, and I've eaten at some of the best restaurants you could ever imagine.
