Yes, it is impossible for me to know more about law school or the legal profession because I am not currently enrolled.  I only live in reality and work in the real world with lawyers everyday.  

Silly me.  I concede.  Florida, you are the best man, I wish I could be a nancy boy cupcake like you....

Nevermind, I like being employed.

Do you really think you know more about law school transfers than someone who has actually experienced it?

Erapitt, why don't you tell us about the sensation of walking on the moon.  It would be about as informative as your current babbling.

ir·re·gard·less    ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (r-gärdls)
adv. Nonstandard

[Probably blend of irrespective, and regardless.]
Usage Note: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.

I was just going to say something about 'the word you were looking for was irrespective.'



I highly doubt top half will work for a transfer on a regular basis.  Also, based on past history, like a 2.7 or whatever subpar GPA he had in SPANISH when his first language is SPANISH, I think odds are in my favor that he doesn't even hit the top half.

Thats known as speculation and conjecture.  That and a quarter will get you a phone call.

Florida, please for the love of GOD relax man!  Don't make a federal case out of what Erapitt says.  I can see the smoke rising off your keyboard as you furiously type a rebuttle.  It's not worth getting all bent out of shape.

Ha, don't worry.  I am far from bent out of shape, just burning a little time.  I have had a few encounters with Erapitt, and he has yet to offer anyone on this board a word of encouragement.  I just get a kick out of pointing out to everyone that he isn't even a law school student, yet acts like he knows what he is talking about.

I mean, really, we are in a thread about law school transfers and he is telling someone who has actually transfered that they are in 'candyland.'  He hasn't even started law school, much less had an opportunity to transfer or heard anything from people who have actually done so.


Yeah, well there is still some correlation between LSAT, College GPA, and law school success whether you want to admit it or not.  To sit here and say that someone that has been sub par in everything they have done academically is going to be a shining star in law school is ridiculous.

You are a moron.

Who said anything about being 'a shining star?'  I see you are keeping up with the 'make up irrelevant crap' strategy.

To the contrary, I believe someone said that all you need is top 50% of your class, meaning that he wouldn't need to be a 'shining star.'  Man, your conceptual grasp of an argument is on par with a 4th grader.

A guy in my class was telling me that his friend transfered from UMiss to UVA.  From what I can tell, law school transfer is easy to do if one is so inclined.

I didn't say anything about GW v. FSU.  Again, you should work on that reading comprehension before you LS exams.  My point was that you are screaming T20 only because you are in the T20, yet you say people who prefer T14 are arrogant.  If you were T1 you would be saying T2 sucks and people who prefer T20 are arrogant, if you were T14 you would be saying T20 means nothing and people who prefer the T10 are arrogant.  You come here to toot your own horn and nothing else.

You keep talking about what other people should be happy with, yet who are you to say anything about that?  He has a right to strive for whatever he wants, and all of us should wish him good luck.  Thats the end of it.

And LSAT is a poor predictor of LS performance. A poor predicter at best.


He has repeatedly been below average up until this point, what makes you think law school will be any different?  News flash: Law school is more difficult than undergrad.  Also, his LSATs were well below average as well. 

Your assertations are based on candyland bullshi# and nothing more.

Says the guy who isn't even in lawschool...

Lawschool isn't more difficult than undergrad, IMO.  That is coming from someone who has actually been to lawschool, as opposed to Erapitt, but take it for what its worth.

The hard part about lawschool is figuring out how to study, it isn't like anything you have done before and they don't tell you how to prepare.  Once you figure out how it works, it is easy.  I have done less work every semester and my grades keep going up.  After your first semester, law school is substantially less work than undergrad if you had any kind of demanding major.  If you majored in History at Easy State University, it might be harder than undergrad.

Transferring within T2 is pointless and maybe even to a T1 if it is not a T20 (it wouldn't make that much of a difference, still a very regional degree).  The reality is there is a very very very slim chance he would ever score well enough to do a T20 transfer.

Not coincidentally, Erapitt is barely on the cusp of T20.  If he was T14 he would be saying you were wasting your time unless you can transfer into T14, but in his current situation he believes anyone who prefers T14 is arrogant.  Remember now, a T1 transfer is pointless unless it is T20, but anyone who prefers T14 is elitist.  What a joke.

To the thread starter: I wouldn't worry so much about rankings, worry more about geography.  Go where you want to practice.  You will be surprised how limiting geography is.  My highschool buddy goes to South Carolina (ranked 97) and he has a much better chance of getting a job anywhere in SC than someone at a T1 school in Florida or VA.

Just be honest about everything, bottom line.  Unless you have multiple arrests, or an arrest for something really serious, you should be fine.  Pay careful attention to what the question asks, i.e. if it asks only for convictions you do not need to disclose an arrest with no adjudication.
