Transferring / Re: Tier 4 to Top 25/Top10 chances
« on: April 09, 2012, 11:17:59 AM »
thanks for your help! I'm currently on a full ride scholarship and should be able to keep it up for the next two years (only need a 2.5 GPA!). So that will definitely be somethign to consider in transferring as I am basically able to graduate debt free. Did you find that you are happy in transferring even though you gave up a sizable scholarship at your 1L school? I guess I'm willing to do it if I get into a top school but what are your thoughts about getting into a top 40-50 school? Worth it?

Thank you! What was the highest ranking school you got into? I too am trying to transfer out of my current location as I don't want to be stuck here for the rest of my career and hoping that a transfer up will help me increase my job prospects.  Any tips on the transfer process and specifically the personal statement? Also, were you offered a scholarship at your school to stay?

Thanks for your response.  Do you mind if I ask what the ranking was of your T-2 school? Trying to gauge where else I should put out some applications.

I am a first year student at a Tier 4 school and I have a full tuition scholarship. I have a 3.7 GPA and on book award for the highest grade. I am probably about top 8-10% in my class but we don't get rankings until the end of the 1L year. I am going to apply to Michigan (T~7) and ND Law (T~23). Thoughts on my chances? I went to a top 25 public university for undergrad with a 3.5 GPA and a 161 on my LSAT (although I'm not sure that matters after 1L year???)
