Transfer applicants are generally accepted only when they rank within the top 15% of their classes, depending on the quality of the law school from which they are applying. Enrollment pressures force a limit on the number of transfer applicants that can be accepted, generally ranging from 2-5 annually. The competitiveness in any given year depends on the overall quality of the applicant pool and available space. Preference is given to Wisconsin residents who apply for transfer on the basis of strong academic showing at another law school.
How much easier are we talking? I'm from Wisconsin. And I know it'll be tough either way. And I know passing up the T1 for T3$$$ is inadvisable, but I have no big law aspirations. JAG gives little weight to what school you attend, and the school I'm looking at is affiliated with both Navy and Air Force ROTC detachments. Conveiniently, those are the branches that award JAG commissions before you've even completed 1L.
If I don't make it, I'd seriously consider dropping out with only 8K or so in debt.
I know it's a risky move, I'm just trying to callibrate how risky. Input please.
