Are there any websites that track transfer statistics? 

Yes.  Try the group "transferapps" on Yahoo groups.

Case gave me the "warm fuzzies".

As far as the guy to girl ratio goes, the last I saw it was 60:40 in favor of guys.  However, the ratio of guys to girls at American is 40:60 and I saw many more attractive women at Case than at American.  I also saw more attractive girls at Case than I do when I drive to work here at school (UIUC) and see all the law students walking to the law building.

In the end you've got the question of quantity vs. quality on your hands.

I've heard talk on this board that other members were impressed with the Int'l law profs during a visit.

I will second that.  The International Law professors at the Case admitted students day were amazing.  I am interested in International Law and was deciding between Case and American and after the visit I have no qualms at all about picking Case over American for International Law.

my acceptance to toledo said they only wanted proof of degree.  i love this school!  if only they gave me more money.

having an F after being accepted is one thing.. schools would probably be much more loathe to withdraw their offer of acceptance, but rejecting you- not a problem.

Agree with both of these posts.  Most schools just request that you verify that you have graduated through a final transcript.  The only school I know of that is diferent is WUSTL which states that admissions offer is contingent upon "satisfactory performance"

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Waitlist + Spring 06 grades

From what I've seen it doesn't seem as if schools that waitlist you are too interested in grades.  I have received six waitlist offers and none of the waitlist letters have even mentioned grades, fall or spring.  It seems as if law schools don't care much at all about Senior year grades.  All of the admission offers I have gotten have simply mentioned sending in a transcript verifying graduation.

Did anyone else attend the event?  What were your impressions?  I really liked the school, particularly the professors associated with International Law, and Case has moved to the top of my list.

Already got my GMU waitlist.  GULC went decision for me several days ago so I am awaiting my rejection letter in the mail when I return from Spring Break.  Here's hoping for that acceptance to GW PT.

I am not completely sure about the specific transfer between divisions at GULC, but if that is where you would rather be then I would say to definitely go there.  At the very least, transferring from GULC PT to GULC FT would be much easier than transferring from GW FT to GULC FT.

Looks to me like GULC is going to be your best bet unless you absolutely love NU and the atmosphere/culture in Chicago.
