Transferring / Tulane/LSU?
« on: May 09, 2006, 10:30:09 PM »
Any advice...

I have to choose between transferring to LSU or Tulane.  While I prefer to attend Tulane, the cost is a big factor.  I would end up taking $50k more out in loans if I go to Tulane.  However, avg starting salary for Tulane grads is $83k and LSU grads is $48k. 

Any takers?? 

Transferring / Extra-curriculars
« on: January 22, 2006, 05:57:53 PM »
Ok guys.. Does anyone know about this?  ???

What part does extra-curricular activities play when attempting a
transfer from a T4 to a T1?

Let's say, for example, that one is a member of several campus
organizations(an officer in one), a writer for the campus newspaper,
logging volunteer hours (w/ Legal Aid) every week since the beginning
of 1L year, and a liaison to the admissions department (somewhat like
an "ambassador"). Let's also say that this person is on a national
steering committee of a political organization, and ranks somewhere in
the top 10% of his class.

What are his chances to get somewhere like GULC? Does participation
in a lot of activities greatly help his chances/help a little/not help
at all?

I really appreciate anyone's insight here. :)

Transferring / Anyone from Okla. City?
« on: November 14, 2005, 08:18:06 PM »
Hey, I go to Oklahoma city Univ. school of law.. (yes, i know.. I had never heard of it either).  I am in a situation that probably a lot of you were in, where this unknown T4 offered me money and i was blinded by it.  So here i am, unhappy and wishing i would have gone somewhere else. 

i am thinking about transferring to either Chicago, Northwestern, Chi-Kent, Georgetown, GW, or American.  Any specific advice?  I have read plenty about G-Town, but would love to hear something on N'western, Kent, or the other schools in DC.

Obviously, this all depends on grades after this semester and next.. but i think I will make top 10%.  (fingers crossed)

ALSO, do any other schools consider transfer apps in the spring? or just g-town?

Thanks!!  Matt
