I have a couple questions for those of you who transferred to GULC and went through OCI in the previous years...

1. How does the GPA work for OCIs? I know most people will put their class rank/GPA. But in terms of employers that only look at top 25%, do they treat GULC transfers differently (since top 25% at GULC is different from top 25% at a lower ranked school)?

2. How does a big drop in GPA affect OCI chances for transfers? My GPA this semester dropped from about top 8% to about top 25% (I know, I've been really disappointed in my performance this semester. I did work hard and I was very suprised by my grades). I was already accepted into GULC EA, so I'm definitely going to GULC now.

3. How does Georgetown OCI work in terms of applying? Is it a blind system?

4. In general, how did everyone do in OCIs? (ie firms interviewed with, firms giving offers, etc). There's some data on yahoogroups, but I'd love to hear from the lawschooldiscussion crowd and in more detail.

5. Finally, I had a question about how to approach my situation. I am currently at an amazing firm this summer and I am very much enjoying my summer associate experience. I really hope to get an offer to come back/work here in the future. However, there are a lot of alumni from my current school who are partners here. Most attorneys at this firm actually come from my current school. I am transferring mainly because I want to keep the option open to teach in the future, GULC offers the speciality I want and that my current school lacks, and I would love to live in DC (at least for law school). However, I can't tell the firm this because they want people who are dedicated to the partnership track. How do I approach them to tell them I am transferring? Should I tell them now or wait until the end of the summer? I don't have many geographical ties to this area but I really do truly want to remain in this city, and hopefully at this firm.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate any information that you can provide!

Standard size envelope (a little thicker than normal because there is another envelope and first tuition deposit form included. Small handwritten message on the paper offering admission (no separate note).

I'm very much leaning towards Georgetown.
I would love to apply to NYU/Columbia (if by some miracle I get straight A's this semester)...the cost of living in NYC and additional expense of applying to NYU/Columbia is making me iffy about it and this GULC deposit is pretty substantial. Would I be willing to lose potentially $500-$600?

Oops yeah it says May 8th, not 9th. There's also a "first tuition" deposit form...which scares me since that means there will probably be a second deposit form....which means more money that I need to borrow.

calilie,

Your stats are good enough for something higher. And its not even for certain yet. Don't be down about it...top 3%  at a top tier is easily good enough for columbia or stanford. keep your head up!
