Current Law Students / Re: Transferring T4 to T1 w/ top %3
« on: April 16, 2015, 09:38:56 PM »
For anyone who may find this at a later time, my stats are in the original post. I was successful in transferring from T4 Widener to Georgetown and got in early decision. So, it is possible & if I can take anything away from this "shot in the dark" acceptance, as that what I viewed it as when I applied, is that it there is no bright line formula of determining whether or not you'll be accepted. Work hard, concentrate on grades FIRST then worry about transferring etc.

Current Law Students / Transferring T4 to T1 w/ top %3
« on: February 17, 2015, 10:38:59 PM »
I finished my first semester at T4 Widener w/ a 3.8 gpa, ranked 3 in my class and/or top 3% and received a CALI award (just discovered what it is). I am filling out my applications for transferring, but want to be realistic about my odds. I anticipate [or pray] that I will have the same success in the Spring semester, and assuming I do, would love some feedback on personal experience or advice on what I should expect to see come decision time. I plan to send transfer applications to Temple, Villanova, Drexel, Rutgers and just for the hell of it, Penn and Georgetown. I also have a solid platform of legal work experience and am a Realtor, if that has any weight I'm not sure, but worth mentioning while I am here.
Cost is obviously a large factor in the decision, but Widener is expensive, and anywhere I would transfer is likely equal or less than it. I am at Widener on scholarship but still pay a substantial amount in tuition.

Any help would be more than appreciated.
