Mandatory mention that this is a bad idea. You won't listen. Carry on.
How about Phoenix Law? You could always try to transfer after 1L if you get good grades and still want to go to ASU. Granted, that's a gamble, but worst-case, you can get that Phoenix Law degree and practice.
Do not do this.
I think MikePing is about right. You need to be in the 170s and the higher the better. If you check out lawschoolnumbers.com, there was apparently a non-URM admit with a 168 and a 2.76 GPA. I think that's cutting it pretty close, but that should at least give you a general idea of how you need to do. Good luck.
why not? I am in just about the same boat as bigs5068 and I am planning on going to Phoenix college before transferring.
It is very unlikely you will get a job a BIG LAW job from GGU and I could not agree more about Big Law job prospects. However, you can get a job as an attorney from GGU and many graduates start out making between 50-80k and it will take time to pay off the debt, but if you want to be a lawyer GGU works fine.
No school jumped up or down 20-30 spots, and, in any case, it doesn't matter much.
Nebraska from unranked tier 3 in 2010 to #84 in 2011, but not just any #84 rank a TWELEVE way tie for 84th place. I donít even know how you can have a twelve way tie for 84th place, but they managed to do it.
LSU went from 75 into this twelve way tie for 84th place. So it is not quite clear if LSU went from 75 to the 96th or 84th school because there is a twelve way tie for the prestigious honor of 84th place.
Kansas went from 65 in 2010 to a simple 5 way tie for 79th place.
Catholic went from a 4 way tie for 94th place in 2010 up to a 5 way tie for 79th place in 2011.
LMU from 71 in 2010 to 54 in 2011.
Emory from #20 to a 4 way tie to #30 yes a five way tie for 30th place. Emory, Fordham, UNC, University of Washington.
-Arizona probably will not impress in L.A. for example. UCLA, USC, are already there not to mention Pepperdine, LMU, Southwestern, also already in L.A.
It is pretty funny that someone who hasn't even taken the LSAT yet or attended one day of law school seems to know everything about the legal profession. Since she goes on the internet with literally no experience even less than me a second year law student her posts just attack people. Maybe while putting the LSAT off she figured out how the whole system works, but as a general rule of thumb don't listen to anybody that has not even taken the LSAT.
However, if you want to live on the east coast after graduation then transferring to Arizona is probably not worth it. Arizona is a regional school more or less that could very easily become tier 2 by the time you graduate because the formula makes no sense. Look back at previous rankings and you will see that schools jump or down 20-30 spots any given year.
In my opinion when ELITE schools are not in the equation location and cost are the most important considerations.
but if you went to Arizona law school and showed up in New York, L.A, etc nobody would really care about it.
