Transferring / Re: GULC w/ 10k grant or NYU/Columbia w/o grant?
« on: July 28, 2009, 02:16:47 PM »
Thanks to everyone for their input.  I guess I don't really have to worry about it unless I get into either Columbia or NYU and since I have yet to hear anything, I'm assuming my chances are not as good as I believed them to be.

Retake the LSAT.  Transferring is never a sure thing.  Never attend a law school you wouldn't want to graduate from, otherwise your last 2 years will be miserable if you don't transfer.

Transferring / GULC w/ 10k grant or NYU/Columbia w/o grant?
« on: July 26, 2009, 06:58:36 PM »
I was recently admitted to GULC with a grant of 10k per year.  I am still waiting to hear from NYU and Columbia.  On the off chance I get admitted to either in the next few weeks, what do you think would be the better option.  I doubt NYU or Columbia will provide any money so the decision will come down to 10K with GULC or no money and NYU/Columbia. 

I have an interest to work in the federal government or public interest generally but don't want to rule out firm work either.  I definitely want to stay on the east coast and preferably the north east such as NYC or Philly but like DC too.  Will top 5 schools make a real difference in my job search and should a total savings of 20k keep me from going for those top 5 schools?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

just a bunch of hypotheticals.  just trying to get a sense of what to do now as opposed to later.

No acceptances at NYU or CLS as of yet, still waiting for decisions.  Went complete a few weeks ago for both though.  Saw someone got accepted at CLS a few minutes ago so I'm not holding my breath.

Just curious on what you would do in this situation.  For clarification, what would be the "better" situation?  Attending GULC with membership on any of the 11 journals or attending either NYU or Columbia while not a member of any journal.

In at GULC for FT with letter dated 5/5.  School ranked mid 50s and top 5%.
Also, I applied FT/PT.

they are contacting because when they sent their transcripts it didn't list what they were taking second semester

This information doesn't seem relevant if they were going to accept one as EA vs defer until 2nd semester is in. Any thoughts?

Does anyone have any idea why GULC would contact applicants about their current/future classes?  Just curious what the implications of this are.
