Transferring / What do they look at: Spring or Fall?
« on: October 23, 2004, 12:24:19 AM »
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

General Board / Re: Undergrad needing advice, ok to take lsat in Dec.?

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, 03:44:36 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
