Thank you for the support.  I am glad our experiences and advice were able to help you get into the school you wanted.  It's great to hear success stories!!  Regardless of what school you transfer to, transferring is still a grueling process with so many unknowns.  Our goal was to make these unknowns known by appealing to all different types of transfer students.

Greetings law school transfer applicants.  As the Spring semester winds down and finals are on the horizon, anxiety is on the rise.  I want to wish all potential transfer students good luck on your exams.  Please feel free to ask questions regarding transferring on this thread, and I will try my best to answer your questions to the best of my ability.  I will be in studying for the bar exam this summer so please allow me some time to respond back to your questions and inquiries.  Stay motivated and focused!!

Best of Luck,

Is there any scholarship money offered to you from either school?  Have you visitied both schools??

Thank you for your comments.

Congrats on doing so well your first semester!!  As you mentioned, finishing at the top of your class as a PT student is not the same as finishing at the top if you are a full time student; however, it is still quite an accomplishment.  I do not believe you will be counted out when trying to apply to the upper echeclon schools.  Since you have your grades solidified, I would concentrate your efforts on obtaining outstanding LOR's and really developing your Transfer Statement to make you stand out from the rest.  You mentioned you applied to GULC EA, I am pretty sure they allow students the opportunity to jump to the full time program after they have proven themselves in the part time program.  Good luck this semster, and I hope our book will provide you with help.


Transferring / Re: Transferring from CALS to ABA School?

Your question is specific and concentrated on one school.  I would suggest calling Southwestern and asking to speak to an Admissions official.  Lay out your story and ask them if it is feasible to transfer.  Good Luck!!


Unfortunately, when Andrew and I did the research for the numbers chart in the book, we focused in on the top 100 schools.  We contacted each school and informed them about our project and those who participated we included their numbers in the book.  Without doing any research on Memphis, I would suspect they do not receive a lot of transfer applications because they are a T3 school and a majority of transfer students try to jump into the T2 and T1 schools.  Additionally, Memphis might be a strong regional school, thus a low number of students are trying to leave if they do well because they want to stay in the area.  Hope this helps.  Good luck this semester!!

Thanks...appreciate the support!!

Thank you for the kind words!!
