Transferring / What do they look at: Spring or Fall?
« on: October 22, 2004, 10:24:19 PM »
When applying to transfer do most schools look at your mid-year grades or wait until the year is done? Or does it differ from school to school?

Thanks in advance

Katie,

In general you are always better off getting your apps in earlier, although 75% sounds almost absurd. The schools won't take action on your application until they have the lsac report, so a late lsat will make a difference.
 
As far as the test itself, unless you are fairly secure that your next one will be 10 points higher, you may want to cancel. If you get say a 162 and 169, they'll still average the results. Some schools average your lsats regardless of any disparities between scores. Bear in mind though that most people suffer a drop-off from practice to the real thing, so if you end up with say, mid 160's, it might be worth keeping. It'll still give you a shot at UT and VA and other really fine schools like BU, UCLA and so forth. Best of luck.

Transferring / Re: Transfer to NYU with a 3.6 at a 2nd tier?

Top 10% seems indeed to be the magic formula. There is no such thing as shoe-in for NYU though. 3.6 at BU for instance may not even be top 3rd of the class, and that's a top 25 school. Good luck thogh.

Transferring / transfer questions and SBA
« on: September 24, 2004, 01:44:36 PM »
Guys,

I got a question. Can anyone tell me if your 1L extracurriculars can weigh in on xfer admissions. For example, all other things being equal- Does a xfer applicant who served on SBA senate stand a better chance than one with the same grades but no SBA service?

Thanks
