UChicago ED Roll Call
« on: April 14, 2009, 11:18:07 PM »
Well, the deadline is today, and you're either complete by today or heading for the RD pool. I only know of two other applicants here, which seems in line with my prediction that the ED applicant pool will be small, but probably really, really competitive. Anyways, check in here!

Stats:
School: Top 10
GPA: 3.3
Rank: No idea. Top 35%?
LSAT: 169
GPA: 3.9
Complete: A lonngggg time ago.

I agree about the small and competitive pool.

School: 50s
LGPA: 3.99
Rank: Not exactly sure... I was told I am at least top 5% (Top 10% is approx 3.6)
LSAT: 163
UGPA: 3.2
Complete: Two weeks ago?

I'm not holding my breath.

widen, if you don't get in, then I don't see who they *would* let in, to be honest. Most people in the T14 would hold out for HYS unless they are looking at more of a lateral transfer. I suppose GTown/Duke/Cornell closer to the top of the class might apply... but still. With a 3.99, I'm sure your rank is top 1%, if not the very top of your class.

I consider myself to have a 50/50 chance, mainly because my GPA is wonky.

School: 30-40
LGPA: 3.85, top 3%

Haha, so now I know 4 people (*waiting for lawman to post*)

This is really competitive. I wonder how they'll look at my average performance at a T10. I think you guys have a much better chance at getting in:)

Good luck!

I would be amazed if more than 20 people applied for ED. I would be even more amazed if they take more than 3 or 4 people, considering that only 15-20 people get in on transfer in any given year.

So no one here can speculate about my chances? ??? I think I'm a coin-flip.

I think it really depends on which T10 you are. If you're in Northwestern, I don't think you have a good chance, for example.

I think your case will be determined more by your LoR, reasons for wanting to transfer (including personal compelling reasons to be in Chicago,) and so on.

If you are just trying to transfer to have a better shot at clerkships... I don't know.

not to be rude, but i would say your chances would be quite a bit less than 50/50 for ED. top 10 is obviously working in your favor, but you will be competing with others very close to the top of their class.

Actually, I also think my chances are less than 50/50. Haha. No rudeness at all.

P.S. Not at NW. PMBV

For the record, two people were admitted from UVA at Penn last year. One was just above median, the other just below. They too, I suspect, were competing against others very close to the top of their class. The game is obviously slightly different for those at T10 law schools, the question is how different?
