Your LSAT score and undergrad GPA aren't really relevant when you transfer. It's all about the first year grades. If that person is in the top 10 then they have a great chance. Columbia, Boalt, Michigan, UCLA, Northwestern, and Georgetown are known for being particularly transfer friendly schools. It depends what school you want to go to. Harvard, Yale and Stanford mostly take people for transfer that they waitlisted the year before. Chicago takes a handful of transfers. Virginia takes a handful too. NYU usually takes transfers from other NY law schools but I'm sure that they take people outside of NY. I don't know about Penn, Cornell or Duke. UT announced that they have expanded the number of transfer they will take for the next coming years to 35.

If you go to the transfer group on yahoo, you can see that a number of tier 1 people who received grades over a 3.7 were just accepted to Georgetown for early decision. Good luck.

"Hello.  I am curious how difficult it is to transfer into one of the top 10 schools.  I have heard that transferring between law schools is much more difficult than between undergraduate schools.  Say, however, that a candidate is ranked among the 10 top people of his class, has a high LSAT score (~170), and is currently at a low tier 1 law school.  How much difficulty would that student have transferring to one of the top 10 law schools?


Sh*T. I have been spending weeks trying to look for info on law school transfers relating to what schools are friendly. After all my search, I found out that GULC, UCLA, Boalt, Michigan, and Columbia were all good to go. Now i realize all I had to do was search for this thread on lsd. SH*T. Anyway...does anyone else have any other good advice for transfer schools relating to specific T20 schools? I am already a member on the yahoo board...but want more!

Dude dutchman...looking at your lsn stats. What are your plans?!?! It looks like your law school application map is like a jigsaw of so many different types of schools in so many different areas of the US, both rural/urban, east/west/south, top20/second tier. Did you just sorta put the idea net out there and see what came about to see where you are going? Cause now I think I should have done that...

I don't understand how Davis is "isolated." Davis is, reportedly, 15 miles from Sacramento, a city of 1.8 million.

official sacramento population: 407,018

close, but no cigar on that one ;)
Oh, seriously....

Like I said, still twice as big as Orlando (200,000 city; 1 million metro). And I feel OH-so-isolated here! Must be the gridlock traffic! I guess everyone knows that only cities above...what 2 million??...aren't isolated! Silly me!

Bro, I think you may be missing part of the point. True, some of these big cities have the numbers, but they don't have the culture to back it up. LA, NYC, SF, and a few more are cities with culture. Orlando Is isolated because of this.

There is actually a field of sociology devoted to this concept. Such world cities share certain cultural and diversity characteristics that enable them to be larger business, industrial, and cultural centers. Many of these cities have hosted 2+ olympics and other world events. Cities like Houston, Dallas, Miami, Seattle are considered second world cities according to these scholars, LA, NYC, Chicago are first world cities. Places like Sac TOWN are not even listed and categorized.

please refrain from mentioning the lakers... :'(

Sorry....DODGERS!  ;D

You people aren't better than us, if that's your implication.

My whole purpose of creating this post was exactly that...we are better than you  :)

There is no real racism or sexism or homophobia on XOXO. It is all a big joke. For example, do you know what came before rap music? It was something called 'toasting' where people would toast their friends or enemies with lyrical rhymes that were eventually set to beats. When you toast someone you say things that you don't truly mean, because it's a carnival. In the carnival, roles reverse, men dress like women, and the order is changed. So it is with XOXO. But underneath all of it, you will always get valuable information and help. I am arrow, and I love that board so dearly that I die a little when people bash it. Please don't bash XOXO. We don't bash LSD on our board.

See, this is funny...cause from what I read on xoxo all the time. People aren't joking. that board has too many wanna be lawyers who think all attorneys do is argue. And it ends up being a shouting match of sh*t talk with each side calling each other a poopy head and then getting moms, sisters, how ugly you are involved. It just gets really old...and I stand by my comment that most kids on that board are whiny pieces of sh*t who could never say that sorta stuff in they need to vent on a board. And like I also said, it happens here too...but on xoxo its a rule or something.

So did anyone else put down their deposit?

Ya, but i guess it gives you an overview of the countryside. For someone like me who applied to 15 schools and can't visit sorta helps.

And ya, I realize that it happens on this board too...but not at the extreme frequency it does on xoxo.

No, it's not the offense that gets to me. I'm all for free boards. Its that too many people on that board think #1 they are all knowing gods #2 give bad advice. If anyone asks a question about anything, it probably takes about 3 posts til it becomes a free for all of flaming that isn't constructive. That and when someone asks about a specific school's academics, someone always has to shoot their mouth off at the person calling him a d*pshit. Reading the stuff just makes me feel sorry for the poster and the postee.
