General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: From T4 to T1 or T2

Greetings, about a year ago a group of transfer students and I went through the process many are discussing on this board now. We went through all the issues, problems, frustrations, and flat-out unknowns.

As a result of our search, we decided that our frustrations were not the way this process should be.  There’s plenty of help for students who want to enter law schools as 1Ls.  There’s not much except for this Board, and a few others for students who are thinking about transferring.

Over the past school year, my roommate and I have been diligently researching schools, interviewing Admissions Deans, and obtaining first-hand personal accounts of others who tackled the transfer process in our attempt to provide a guidebook on what we felt is the best way to attack the law school transfer process.  Without the knowledge and insight provided by this Board, we strongly believe that we would not have been as fortunate in our own transfer experience.  The posts on this very board helped to shape the way we chose to structure this guidebook. 

The Art of the Law School Transfer: A Guide to Transferring Law Schools is slated for official publication in August of this year. Check it out at http://www.amazon.com/Art-Law-School-Transfer-Transferring/dp/1888960302/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248115964&sr=8-1.  Even though the transfer season for this year is almost over, the book also offers insight on how to handle the transition to your new 2L school and how to deal with OCI as a transfer student.

Looking forward to your comments and feedback and hopefully our research and experiences can help you get into the school of your dreams.

Good Luck!!

General Board / Re: Can one transfer from Whittier to better schools?
« on: July 20, 2009, 02:53:27 PM »
Coming from Whittier you will have to finish in at least the top 10%, most likely top 5% to have a shot at Gtown, UCLA, or Boalt.  Check out the book The Art of the Law School Transfer on Amazon.  The book outlines everything you need to kow about transferring law school.  http://www.amazon.com/Art-Law-School-Transfer-Transferring/dp/1888960302/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248115964&sr=8-1

Let me know if you have any other questions.

General Board / Re: Transfer from Tulane to GULC - Worth $60k?
« on: July 20, 2009, 02:44:22 PM »
I am a transfer student myself and have just recently published a book titled The Art of the Law School Transfer: A Guidebook to Transferring Law School .  First off, congrats on doing so well in your first year of law school.  It is quite an accomplishment and you should feel proud.  I think the number one question you have to ask yourself where do you want to practice and do you really want to be involved in Big Law coming out of law school.  If you want to broaden your chances of Big Law and not just limit yourself to the Southern market, then Georgetown is the obvious choice, if not keep your ranking, scholarship money, and most likely law review invite at Tulane.  The Tier 1/2 jump up is the most difficult decision to make because you are coming from a good school to begin with, its just that the "hot shot" T14 schools are hard to pass up on.  If you need any other help in making your decision feel free to to write back.
