Does anyone know of a student that transferred from Central to Carolina? I have heard that some have transferred from Campbell to Carolina, but Ihave no idea about Central. Does the C curve at Central damage a persons chances of transferring?
Grad curves work, very basically like this; if a school has a B curve then approximately half the class will get above, and half below, with the median for the entire class being a B. That means the higher the curve the easier it will be to do well and the lower the curve the more it will pull you down. Does this make sense?
I don't know about the grading curve, but I've seen some of your posts about NCCU. Have you decided to go there? I'm thinking about going there, and I wanted to see if anyone had heard anything about the school and the program (job placement, etc).
I got denied last year at UNC. I had a 3.4 and a 156 (in 2000)...no surprise really. I waited, studied hard and made a 164 on my 2nd lsat. I got denied again at UNC...they're tough. I'm waitlisted at Wake Forest and Tennessee (I thought i'd get in there). One perk of waiting though is that I got in at Arkansas with a good chunk of money. I'm also in at Baylor in the Spring. I'm undecided as where to go...wondering if the more highly regarded schools would be worth the extra money. (any thoughts?)
If you raise your scores significantly and still don't get in at Carolina, you may get $ from Central or in at another as well. So all wouldn't be lost if you give it another go and still don't get in. Are you in a rush?
What about transfering? I've heard that it can be a bit less competitive if you have very good first year grades. I may try it as well. good luck with your decision...
I would wait a year because with your numbers you can definately get into better schools next cycle. Is there a reason not to wait?
