Transferring / Schools that accept many transfer students
« on: October 18, 2005, 01:08:09 PM »
I've noticed a lot of schools only accept a few transfers, just to fill space by 1Ls that left. Does anybody know any top 20 schools that accept a good amount of transfers, instead of the usual 4 or 5?

I am looking to attend University of Denver next Fall, is anybody on here currently attending there? If so I'd like to hear your impression of it and anything else you'd like to pass on. Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / How Competitive is it to Get Into An LLM Tax Program
« on: March 20, 2007, 06:44:19 AM »
I'm interested in going into tax law and figure that I'll probably end up getting an LLM in tax. Does anybody know how competitive these programs are? There is a lot of information out there for JD programs, but I'm having a hard time finding it for tax LLM programs. Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / Tax Law, LLM required?
« on: November 27, 2006, 12:16:43 PM »
I am very interested in tax law. I have noticed that most tax attorneys have an LLM, is it pretty much required to have an LLM to be a tax attorney? I'm just wondering if it is worth an extra year of school to do an LLM in tax.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Tax Law Rankings
« on: April 10, 2006, 10:37:25 AM »
Can somebody who has access to the tax law rankings list the rankings here?


My city of preference is San Antonio. I have mid range stats (161, 3.5) so I know that University of Texas is out of reach, which I'm sure is the best school to land a top job in San Antonio. Is St. Mary's a good choice? I know it is a very low ranked school, but it is in the location I want. I'd guess the top graduates there get some good offers in San Antonio. Any advice or suggestions?


Choosing the Right Law School / Case Western or Wake Forest
« on: June 21, 2005, 08:19:44 PM »
So I've been accepted to Case Western with a $11k scholarship, I was set to attend there. Today I got a message from Wake Forest telling me that I got in off their wait list. I'm having a hard time deciding what to do. Would going to Wake Forest provide more options since it is ranked higher and has a little more prestige? I personally don't care about the location, whether I end up practicing in Ohio or North Carolina, I just want to attend the school that will provide the best opportunities upon graduation. Since I have a scholarship at Case Western it would be a little cheaper to attend there though. Any advice would be most helpful. Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / Who's made the decision to go to Case?

I've made the decision. That's where my law degree will be coming from. Who else is heading there? And have you thought about where you are going to be living at?

I've been looking at Case Western and received a scholarship there, however, even with the scholarship I'll rack up over 100k of debt if I attend there. Is Case Western worth that? I'm comparing that with another school that is a little lower ranked but where I would probably end up with about 70k of debt. What are your thoughts?

Choosing the Right Law School / Denver or Case Western

Which would be the better choice. Case Western offered me a 11,000/yr scholarship, Denver offered 16,500/yr. Both don't have minimum requirements to keep the scholarships. I had been leaning toward Denver because they were offereing more money and I'm worried about debt. But would Case offer better career options? I also noticed that in the 2006 rankings, Case moved up into T1 while Denver fell a few spots. Any advice?
