1L job search / 1L Interview w/V30 and Rejection Question...
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:20:58 PM »
Got an interview w/V30 and was not selected.  Partner called and said everyone who interviewed me was impressed w/me and said that I was the second most likely person they would have hired.  Partner said I could interview for SA gig as 2L w/out going through OCI.  I am assuming they told the other six people they rejected the same thing.  Does this mean anything?  I attend a T4, so I was shocked that I even got an interview in the first place.

Transferring / T4 to GULC EA?
« on: January 14, 2008, 08:58:43 PM »
T4
GPA: 3.66 on a forced curve of 2.67-3.00
In 2006 the cutoff for the top 10% was 3.49. The curve was increased
this year so I think the cutoff will be higher this year.
LSAT: High 150s
One Book Award

Does GULC EA seem achievable?
I know some people transferred to GULC EA from my school last year but
they all had a GPA of at least 3.75.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I don't think the numbers are set in stone.  A person with a very high GPA of 4.0+ could probably get a full ride with a 156 and vice versa.

You need to call UB and ask about your specific status since you are in a unique position due to your withdrawal.  You appear to have a compelling financial/family reason to want to attend UB.  Emphasize this in your app.  Mark Bell Assistant Director of Admissions Office of Academic
Affairs - LC 103 (410) 837-4464 should be able to answer any specific questions.

Civ Pro A+ 4.33! (Only 1 A+ was given)
LARW I A-
Torts A-
Crim B+ (shocked, I had a perfect score (highest in class) on the midterm)
Contracts I B+ (relieved, I consider myself lucky)
GPA: 3.666 on a draconian forced curve of 2.67-3.00, the curve was actually just raised
I am hoping this puts me in the top 25%

Gradaute degree
Good letters of recommendation and good ECs

I was told that a LSAT of 163+ is a virtual lock for a full tuition scholarship when I applied for Fall '07. I am assuming your GPA isn't ridiculously low.  We got a new dean this past year, and I believe the amount of scholarship money available increased. It may now be a little easier to get a scholarship.

Good Luck
