Transferring / Re: Georgetown PT to HYSCCN?
« on: March 12, 2010, 04:39:42 PM »
I got into HLS, SLS and Chicago (3 for 3) last year, top 2% (3.84) gtown PT. A friend of mine was top 5% (3.75ish), gtown PT who applied top-8 and didn't get in anywhere. I was shocked that I swept and my friend didnt get in anywhere. I didnt think the ranking was that much of a difference and my friend's resume was strong. I heard that another Gtown ptime student applied, but didnt get in. So who knows. As for HLS, the HLS transfers are no.1/top 2-3%, and I am sure it is the same at Yale and Stanford. IMO you need top 2% or something that stands out on your resume that brings diversity (e.g., unique work experience).

On a side note, do not bring PT up on your application or in your essays unless the essay specifically asks for it. You dont want to raise a red flag. It is possible that it will be overlooked or that they will bend the rules/guidelines for you because they decided to accept you before they realize, if they realize, you are PT. Many schools say that don't accept PT (HLS) but they did in the past and will again in the future. I dont think there are many admissions per se rules (e.g., acceptig late applications, etc.)

Don't listen to what the school tells you and apply regardless if there is a school you are set on going to. HLS told me I couldnt apply unless I had 30 credits but I applied anyways and got in. The "official" answer is not always correct and if you talk to a different person in the same office you will get different answers. I talked to several schools and pretty much everyone will take you, especially given the financial condition of some of these schools.

Thanks everyone.  I haven't had time to completely evaluate my situation so I will be doing a lot of self reflection and research over the weekend. I will likely ask for your guys input.

Just got admitted to University of Chicago. So there is some love for part time students.

I'm PT at Gtown applying to transfer so I will let you know the results, if you want. Top 2-3% with a CALI award, firm SA. NYU, Penn, and Boalt will not accept PT transfer students. Stanford, Yale, Chicago, and Columbia do. Possibly Harvard but they havent given me a straight answer. One of the posters above said something along the lines of not being able to have summer experience because you will be taking classes. This is not entirely accurate. Pretty much everyone I know is taking classes with a summer job. Most people are working PI or RA. So it is possible to work FT, which is a little crazy, while going to school, which is the purpose of PT. Let me know if you have any question about Gtown PT.
