Transferring / Re: chances at Texas schools

please note my disclaimer "im just guessing after talking with admissions".  Take my advice with a grain and salt.  By the way, I would rather transfer to STCL than Tech.

this is just some guessing after talking with some admissions people.

Tech - top 15% should almost be a guarantee
UH - top 5% necessary, no where close to a guarantee
UT - top 5% necessary, no where close to a gaurantee

why no STCL, or is that where you are right now?

In Kansas the factors for determining the enforceability of a non-competition covenant are
1.  Protects a legitimate business interest
2.  Does not create an undue burden on the employee,
3.  Is not injurious to the public welfare
4.  Contains reasonable time and territorial restrictions.

For example, UNC School of Law (#27 USNWR) states the following on the transfer page of their website:

"To be competitive for admission, transfer applicants should be originally admissible to the School of Law and be performing superior academic work at their current law school."

I always thought statements like this meant that you had to meet the minimum requirements to have gained admission to the school originally, like a minimum gpa of 2.0 they accept, and not necessarily have a minimum gpa that they typically accept.

Ok, I finally got my class ranks in and now am looking for some advice.

I currently attend Washburn University in Kansas (3rd Tier), have a 3.73 GPA, and am ranked 9/141.  My undergard GPA was 2.58 and LSAT score of 153.  I have no desire to practice law in Kansas and am planning on practicing law in Texas.

So the schools I am considering transferring to are University of Texas, University of Houston, South Texas College of Law, and Texas Tech.

I am also planning to apply to any schools that have early actions programs.  Aside from Georgetown, are there any other schools that will look at first semester grades?

If anyone has any advice or encouragements please respond.
