Transferring / Re: Visiting Student Question
« on: February 19, 2009, 01:36:46 PM »
1) Do law schools care about your grades when you apply to be a visiting student?
2) Most law schools say you need a 'compelling reason' to be a visiting student. Would wanting to work in that immediate area as opposed to my current school thousands of miles away count as a compelling reason, or would there need to be something more like to be close to a sick relative?

1) I don't think so - its just more tuition money for them, without any real downside. That being said, it might be a different case for T14 schools and state schools that strongly favor in-state students (like UNC, Texas, etc.)

2) Wanting to work in the area is a compelling reason

What was the selection process like? I've applied to two districts and the DOJ's Antitrust Division, but haven't heard back from any of them yet.

I think being 20 either has a marginal benefit or no effect at all. I was 19 when I sent off my applications and won't be 21 for another 2 weeks (I'm a 1L now). My cycle ultimately played out pretty much as I predicted it would - no pleasant surprises, but no huge disappointments either. Good luck.

Pure speculation - I think that simply being a member of Law Review would be enough, unless you hope to clerk for a particularly prestigious court.

You should probably join the Yahoo transfer group for more detailed info, but I think you would have a decent shot at WUSTL and they have an early action program.

Dressler's Understanding Criminal Law, you can get it cheap on eBay.

I enjoy gunners for the comic relief they provide, particularly when they come up with elaborate hypos, commentaries, etc. from far out of left field only to get shot down by the professor...

Miami's defensive line was impressive.

The score doesn't represent how close this game really was.

I agree.

EDIT: You deleted your post!  :D

:D It's because I realized you said 1-3 losses between them...instead of 1-3 losses each. Clearly, Florida will be undefeated ;D
