Last year, I applied to seven ambitious schools and two less-so and gained acceptance to both my safeties and was rejected from the others. Wanting to stay at my job another year and to mull my options, I deferred admission at one and applied to a couple more schools this year, but unfortunately, I am now stuck on waitlists. In the meantime, I visited the school that I deferred from recently and realized that I really didn't like the atmosphere and the people I met, who seemed bored and more interested in partying and getting into big firms.
I'll be 24 this year, and I know it's not old, but I really want to get moving on my legal education and I'm excited to be back in the classroom again. In your opinion, if I don't get off the waitlist at the school of my choice, how easy is it to apply as a transfer for next year? My reasoning is that the 1L curriculum is basically the same at all ABA schools and it might be worth it to try and transfer during the second and third years, when I'll have some choice in coursework. Anyone have any insight on how many transfers schools tend to accept? Thanks in advance.
