Transferring / Re: T4 - T3/T2 (CSU or CWRU)

I suppose I should ask a question in there somewhere too... I was wondering what my chances as a transfer student would be like to those two schools.

Transferring / T4 - T3/T2 (CSU or CWRU)
« on: February 17, 2010, 06:13:17 AM »
I am currently at a T4 school and looking to transfer to a T3/T2 School (CSU or CWRU). The motivation for this stems primarily from geographical as well as personal reasons and I was wondering what people's input on this would be like. After my first semester, my grades 3.1 GPA and I was in the top 30%. I wont apply for CWRU's early action because I think it'd be a waste of money with those grades and I know I can improve during my second semester.

Current Law Students / Best netbook?
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:58:05 PM »
Im planning on taking all my in class notes on a netbook (using microsoft onenote) and then supplementing my written outlines after class, i retain stuff better this way. anyone use this method or a netbook in general? or onenote? i posted a subject about this a few months ago but I just wanted a second opinion before I spend $340. am leaning towards an asus just because of their reviews on but i also hear that the HP mini's are nice.

Current Law Students / Netbooks over Traditional Notebooks
« on: June 17, 2009, 08:23:49 AM »
I realize there is alot of note taking involved in Law School and was seriously considering bringing a Netbook to class (along with paper notebooks of course), but I became familiar with Microsoft OneNote and actually like it a lot. It can sync up with my notebook at home (which is very heavy) and I can then print copies of the notes whenever I like. Is there anyone else out there that uses OneNote or a Netbook for note taking? Thoughts and opinions appreciated.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Capital or Toledo

You are literally in the same boat as me, even to the extent of wanting to transfer to OSU. I had to choose between Capital and Toledo and ending up choosing Capital for a number of personal reasons, but I liked Columbus much better than Toledo. There just seems to be more opportunity in Columbus and there are more ties to Cleveland here, which is where I went for my undergrad. I received a $10,000 scholarship at Capital which helped reduced their high private school tuition. Toldeo is ranked higher than Capital but a huge part of law school is what you make of it and how far you are willing to go to succeed. If you think you have enough drive to graduate higher at Capital than at Toledo, or meet OSU transfer qualifications, Id say go for it and welcome to the club.

Choosing the Right Law School / Capital Law school
« on: May 12, 2009, 02:29:58 PM »
So Ive decided to go to Capital Law school (over akron, dayton, and toledo) and am going to bust my ass to get in or as close to the top 10%. I really want to transfer to OSU and am wondering if anyone has any advice on transferring to there (or any at all), or how to build up a good 1L (extracurriculars, etc) resume to take to the admission board. I also plan on living at the Arbor on Watermark so any input on those apartments would be helpful too. Thanks.

The numbers from Toledo seem more impressive than Akron's, according to rankings. The Capital price tag is substantially more than the other two but it seems like I'd have better job placement in Columbus than in Toledo? Higher paying jobs? Also, would I stand a better chance of being accepted as a transfer student from which of the three schools?

So far I've been accepted into Toledo (waiting to hear on $), Akron ($7k), Capital ($10k), and WL at Syracuse. Right now Im debating between Toledo and Capital with hopes on eventually entering the Columbus/Cleveland job market. It seems Toledo is the better school out of the two (t3 v t4)? But the thought of going to one of the two and transferring to Ohio St. had crossed my mind. Any thoughts or opinions are greatly appreciated.
