Transferring / Re: Meeting with Admissions

I am really only interested in going to my flagship state school, I am going to send another app to a Top 20 in the same state just to see what happens, thanks.

You're right. It is different. You should have specified that because admissions for transfers is sometimes more competitive/different than applying for 1L admission. I think there is a thread on transferring somewhere around here.

Could you honestly not tell from his post that he is applying as a transfer student?

I never formally briefed my cases, but I did book brief.  I had some experience briefing cases in undergrad though so I might have been a little ahead of the curve.  I also didn't make a single outline and I finished Top 1% of my class.  Just stick to what works for you when studying and don't fall prey to all the things you "must" do as a 1L.  Some people need to brief every case and make their own outlines to do well, some don't.  It is all a matter of personal preference and ability.

Does your school not have a final grade date?  All mine were due June 1st.

I found my answer by refining my search terms, thanks LSD

Transferring / Meeting with Admissions
« on: June 05, 2007, 07:55:25 AM »
So I busted my ass and finished in the top 1% of my class at a T4, and I am applying to transfer to a high T2 which is not transfer friendly (receive about 40-50 transfer apps, take around 4-5 students).  I want the best chance possible so I contacted the admissions office and setup a meeting next week since it has been recommended to visit schools that someone wants to transfer to.  WTF do I do at the meeting?  Just ask questions that I already know the answer to?  Beg them to let me in?  Should I bring knee pads and KY?

No one can guarantee you will get in anywhere, your grades at least make you a consideration at most schools so all you can do is apply and pray.

Job Search / Re: Being a Summer Associate rocks!

congrats and all but the life of a summer associate is a make believe fairy tale land- they shower you with gifts and free food/booze to lure you in. when they have you, you're their slave working crazy hours to put $$$ in the partner's pockets while you see only a miniscule fraction of that amount. i'm sure you'll be singing a different tune about how happy you are that you went to law school when you start working those 60-70 hour work weeks.

whats up with your buzzkill?

Depends on the firm, some have specific start-end dates, some are flexible with these dates, and some will let you split summers.

Check your school's academic standards, most say that the administration can change grades if they do not comply with the curve.
