Current Law Students / Re: Hoping to Transfer -- need some help

You should forget all those schools and stay where you are, imho. You'd have to start over from scratch at a new school and may not make a journal since you're transferring in, which is fairly important. Also, if you're not already on scholarship, you might want to try and shake a little money out of Tulane. Just an idea.

I heard top 10% will make them waive the MCAT requirement and the need for a science-related background.

Current Law Students / Re: Transferring from T4 to T1 or T14

I actually know a friend who's in a 4th tier toilet, but he got 4.0 on a 2.7 curve.  Any chance for a T4 to T14 transfer? What do you think? I think it is still a longshot, even with a 4.0.  Maybe he can try some schools in the 15th to 30th range.

My contracts professor transferred from a T4 (night) to it's possible

That was probably before the US News rankings pushed the competitive aspect of law schools between eachother. Transferring used to not be anything special.
David Boies transferred from Northwestern to Yale without even having to submit an application, but that was 20 or so years ago and he was sleeping with the girlfriend of one of his professors.

Transferring / Re: Schools that accept Early Action Transfers

Case Western

Good grades are needed, probably even into the really good range.

Top 10% most likely, but don't go to a school expecting to transfer, as I'm sure you've heard.

UMD won't be too bad if your husband is in DC; you can take the train out there from DC or vice versa and it shouldn't take you but about 40 minutes depending on where you are. If you don't have to live on base, check out the MARC and METRO layout before you look at places to live; depending on a car during rush hour between DC & Baltimore is a mistake.

I go to GW in DC and my girlfriend works in Baltimore, and it's never taken me longer than 80 minutes to get from my place in Foggy Bottom to Camden in Baltimore. UMD is a good school and fun area, I have a couple friends there. Good luck.

Assuming you're not including clinics, skills courses, etc. There are several clinics at my school where you're given primary responsibility over cases, e.g. vaccine injury clinic. IMHO, these are the exceptions to the "how," yet the conventional wisdom is that you learn more in your first year after law school than you did throughout all of law school.

Transferring / Re: Visiting versus Sticking It Out?

Does anybody know how demanding schools are in allowing students to visit? Can you just have a good reason to do it, or is it more similar to transferring qualifications?

I'm still so burned out that I know I'm going to get that sinking feeling walking into class the first day of next semester. Like coming back in from recess back in the day.
