Transferring / Re: Transferring after your 2nd YR of LS
« on: July 07, 2011, 07:26:14 PM »
Whatever school you attend for two years is where you will get your law degree from (it is an ABA rule).  If you are already a 2L that transferred into your current school and you want to go to another school you will have to forfeit a year of school.

If your GPA puts you in the top 10%, you will have a good chance of getting into T1 schools with an outside shot at the T14 schools.  Feel free to PM me if you have specific questions.  Good luck!

I do not know the specifics about chances of transferring from UBalt to Maryland but if you are looking for a complete overview of the transfer process, I would check out the book The Art of the Law School Transfer.  It lays out the whole picture of the transfer process.  Good Luck!!

You may want to take a look at the book Dismissed Law Student Essays.  Its availabe on Amazon.  I don't know much about the book but it seems to fit what you are looking for...possibly.  Good luck!

As mentioned above you will be losing most if not all of your credits that you take as a 2L. When transferring most school only accept approximately your first 30 credits.  The reason for doing this is that you must complete atleast 2/3 of your credits at one school.

Good luck!  Feel free to PM if you have any other questions or post to this thread.

It all depends on where you see yourself practicing.  Feel free to message me for more advice.

Thank you for the support Joe.  When Andrew and I set out to write the book, providing a roadmap from beginning to end was exactly what we wanted to do.  We are glad the book was so useful to you.  We look forward to hearing more about other successful transfer stories, and always welcome transfer questions.  Good luck to the 2010 transfer class!!

Get LOR's from professor that you have developed the best relationship with.  LOR's that can speak to your character are viewed in the highest regard.  Good luck!

Regarding your Transfer Statement... Keep it short and simple.  Follow some of the same parameters that you did with your Personal Statement in your 1L app.  Limit it to two pages, try and separate yourself from the rest of the class while interweaving why you want to attend that specific school.  The Transfer Statement is important because it could put you over the edge and into the school you always wanted to go to.  Good Luck!!
