Is it possible to transfer from GW PT to a T14 FT? If so, I would imagine that you'd have to place even better than top 20%, since the PT class isn't as numerically competitive (LSAT, GPA), right?
T14 schools and their stance on letting PT students in as transfers...
yale (though pretty convinced it's a no)
as far as being PT at GW, these schools generally claim that PT students must rank at the same spot as FT students. though, they will all advise you that there is no guarantee of admission at any ranking, and that having taken less credits might put a student at a disadvantage against someone who has..
personally, i would fail to see why you would need to rank higher in PT than those in FT who transfer. while it's true that the admissions requirements are lower than those for FT, they're also higher than many other tier 1 schools. if T14's take students from the top 15% or so from any tier 1, why not GW PT?
saxby, by the way, makes an excellent point about the PT students and the rankings in general.
