Even if you do lose it, you're spending THOUSANDS of dollars to go to school.  Isn't it worth $200 to save a spot?

Transferring / Re: T4 to T1

I applied both in state and out of state.  I also applied to transfer friendly schools.  I can't say they all were because I applied to a lot of schools (12).  The closest I've even gotten to a decision is Santa Clara saying my application is "in committee."  It's been that way for 9 days...  I guess some schools also don't do status checks online and I am quite far from a few.  Maybe I'm just reasoning with myself, but all I really want is one acceptance so I can leave my old school  :o

Man I haven't heard from anyone yet....  all your talk is making me nervous :-) . 

Would you be kind enough to post ur general class rank?  I'm getting nervous.  I was top 3% at a T4 so I kind of hoped I would hear (at least from somewhere) by now.  Applied everywhere from low tier 2 to mid tier 1's...

It depends on the school.  I have talked with schools that say they will look at them as soon as your file is complete and others that say they will wait until the first or second week in July when most schools have released grades from your first year.

Just an FYI, you have PSU as part of the Philly category.  It's not close to Philly.  It's smack in the middle of PA (closer to Harrisburg) and is 3 hrs from Philly and 3 hrs from Pittsburgh.

In this job market I would think long and hard before making this downgrade unless there was a VERY compelling reason.  School matters and T3/T4 graduates are having a much harder time finding work than T2s.  My first thoughts for anyone going to law school is to reconsider THAT decision...

My current school is ranked in the Low-60's and I want to transfer to a T3 for reasons pertaining to location..

So how hard is it to do this?  What kind of grades would I need to show?

Any knowledge would appreciated.  Thanks.

This is the best advice you will get.  I couldn't have said it better myself.  If anything, transfer to a higher ranked schools.  From what I've been told, T25 grads aren't even a shoe-in anymore.

What's with all the flamage anyways?  Someone just asked for help.  Either help or move along.

Since nobody was able to reply, maybe I should rephrase/redefine my question. 

After looking through all 43 pages on this topic, some people have asked similar questions, but the answers are rather outdated.  In today's day and age, more students are attending law school than ever before (partially because of the economy).  Coming from the top 10% of a tier 4 law school, is it feasible to be accepted as a transfer to a mid level tier 1 or tier 2?  What about top 20%? 

Hopefully this makes it easier to understand what I am aiming at.  Thanks in advance.

I'm sure this has been asked many times, but it was unrealistic to search through 43 pages of posts.

I'm a second semester student at a crappy (tier 4) law school.  I got my first semester grades and was able to be in the top 4% of my class.  I'm wondering what my choices are for transferring schools from people who have attempted transferring in the past.  Some deadlines have passed and I have applied, but I'm really wondering where I should be aiming if I keep within the top 10% of my class.  Thanks in advance.
