Transferring / Re: Process of Transferring From COOLEY

If you are serious about this you need to contact the schools you plan to try to transfer to. They and only they can answer these questions properly for you.

If you havn't started yet and plan to transfer don't go. Just raise your LSAT and (if possible) try to take a few extra classes that are blow off to raise your undergrad GPA. (If going to cooley I am guessing you don't have your full BA)

There are going to be people there who have a 160 LSAT and 4.0 undergad GPA who are attending just for the full ride. They will be the top 10% of your class. They won't want to transfer but will be the only ones other school truely want. The curve will make that happen.

If you can't stand Cooley don't go. If you go, plan to graduate and plan to go part time since if your LSAT is under 160 you can't handle a 15 credit load and not be academicly dismissed. You just can't. Expect 5 years at Cooley if you go.

firms with 25 people or more, so in other words solo practioners don't exist.

thats interesting.

Federal clerkships?!  So, in other words, state clerkships, ALJ clerkships, specialty court clerkships, shitlaw jobs, etc. don't exist?

People who were unemployed nine months after graduation?!  So, people who were unemployed 1 year after graduation don't exist?

That's interesting.

Look, guy.  The stats are there - I linked to them.  I don't have the time to sit here and post stats all day to appease you.  I've cut and pasted the Stanford/Cooley comparison right off of Professor Paul Campos' website.  I got bitched at because it was a comparison between Cooley (a school that "everyone knows sucks" - but yet, the OP is willing to take a chance on) and one of the top schools in the nation.  So, I crunched the numbers and posted the same stats with Cooley vs. two Tier 2s. Again, I get bitched at - this time, because I could have posted other stats, but I didn't. 

Why don't you stop whining and post your own stats if you don't like what I've posted?  I think the stats speak for themselves.  If you believe that Cooley places better in the solo market, BY ALL MEANS, post the stats.  Someone will then complain that you didn't consider firms with > 300 attorneys, with > 5 attorneys, with > 10 attorneys, with > 2 attorneys.

wow, someone has "me" issues.

Wasn't saying anything about you or your precious time (that you clearly have time to post about not having)
Was refering to the way the stats are done.
Thanks for the inner window into your minnd though. Sorry if it made any veins burst.

I keep asking this to everyone because it seems obvious (with the exeption being if you already took the 3 in two year max as some have) but why not just retake the lsat before enrolling in these non JD courses?

Some people need help with prep and find it from kaplan or others but still, the LSAT is not that hard. Anyone who can get a BA can get at least a 160 if they prep and retake.

If you can't then you need to be honest about why you can't and realize that it is set up as a gatekeeper to help protect those who can't pass it from wasting their time and money.

If you can't swim, stay out of the pool. No lifeguard on duty.

seen soldiers do it in Iraq.

Always weird to see a Cpt and a Cpl both swearing if for the same thing at the same time. Both equal for a few minutes and then one being a God and the other an ant ten seconds latter.

So yeah, it can be done.

ive gotten my criminal justice degree in honors and have been part of the police force and am pretty knowledgeable about the law.  when i took my LSATs my father passed away, my aunt passed away, and my father in law passed away.  family issues came.  i ran the family business and supported my family. since my lsats werent good enough i went to concord and still can continue IF i want to practice in cali for some time. but i thought hey why not try to stay around here.

One year of Concord is about what those programs will give you anyways.

Answer: Retake the LSAT. (quick,easy, and cheaper) Why waste your money and more time of your life spinning wheels if you are telling the truth. You can retake it. Just do that. Why would you not consider that as your #1 option?

How low could your lsat have been? You only need like a 140 to get into cooley and you get a 120 for showing up to the exam.
If you need to take a program take an LSAT prep course. That would a better way to go.

Neither are law school.

Why waste your time?

What makes you want to do something so bad that you can't even get into cooley and yet still want to do it?
(Cooley is in Florida now, if even they won't take you, you need to look into the service industry)
