General Board / Re: Why does it take so long to get class ranks?
« on: June 16, 2008, 11:31:32 PM »
Yeah, I can't think of any reason for the delay other than wanting to screw over transfers.  Give me the grades and excel, I'll do it in 20 minutes...

My school has a very high transfer-out rate (I know I'm trying to transfer) and I was just told today that it would be another two weeks for rank to come out.  We received our grades faster than normal (late May), probably as a result of students complaining about how long grades usually take.  My guess is that they planned to release grades early to appease eager students waiting to see how they did, but opted to release rank at the normal delayed rate in an effort to hamper transfer efforts.  What else explains a 4-5 week gap between grades and rank? 

The thing that annoys me is that these morons are toying with my future here...

I take it no one has heard anything yet?

Do it. 

Worst case scenario you're out of the $80 app fee.  The way I see it, if you're in law school you're probably in massive debt anyway, so what's another $80 in the scheme of things?

GW has a 500 word limit and I've got 519... anyone think this is a big deal?

Considering how competitive the legal markets are in the cities you are mentioning, and the fact that you want to pursue big law, I would advise the transfer...

Congrats on WUSTL.  I don't know about how well it places in those cities but you probably have a much better shot at BigLaw coming from there.

I saw a few deferral/acceptances on transferapps... I don't think it's a nice way of saying rejected.  I think it's a nice way of saying "kick ass next semester and we'll talk."

At least thats what I'm telling myself :P

Not to burst everyone's bubble (including my own - deferred), but transferapps suggests that deferral at GULC is just a nice way of saying rejected.  I see one guy who is deffered/accepted, but he was part-time.

Anyone know of how many spots are available for the deferred crew?

I don't understand why people in your position transfer to a school like GULC.  Will it really help you that much?  Your school is in the top 25 or so correct?  You presumably have a pretty good rank right? Unless DC is really the market you want to work in and your current school is an undesirable market, I don't know why you would go through the trouble, not only of transferring, but dealing with the part time hassle that you're describing. 

My advice: stay at your current school (unless you really want to practice in DC).

Glad to see everyone is still staying positive. 

Got my deferral letter just now.  Went decision Tuesday night.

Top 5%, T4

ha... am I seeing a trend here??? I look forward to receiving my deferral letter shortly :P

Once again I must reiterate, better than being rejected.
