Transferring within T2 is pointless and maybe even to a T1 if it is not a T20 (it wouldn't make that much of a difference, still a very regional degree).  The reality is there is a very very very slim chance he would ever score well enough to do a T20 transfer.

Not coincidentally, Erapitt is barely on the cusp of T20.  If he was T14 he would be saying you were wasting your time unless you can transfer into T14, but in his current situation he believes anyone who prefers T14 is arrogant.  Remember now, a T1 transfer is pointless unless it is T20, but anyone who prefers T14 is elitist.  What a joke.





To the thread starter: I wouldn't worry so much about rankings, worry more about geography.  Go where you want to practice.  You will be surprised how limiting geography is.  My highschool buddy goes to South Carolina (ranked 97) and he has a much better chance of getting a job anywhere in SC than someone at a T1 school in Florida or VA.


Florida, irregardless of you being a total tool,


EWW EWWW EWW!! "Irregardless" is not a word!! The correct word is REGARDLESS!!

Straight from Meriam Webster jerkoff.

A guy in my class was telling me that his friend transfered from UMiss to UVA.  From what I can tell, law school transfer is easy to do if one is so inclined.

Yeah, if they are an exception in the top 5%.  Hell, UVA even asks for your LSAT score if you apply as a transfer.


Anyway, florida, I am not even going to discuss this with you anymore.  You just get the threads locked once you get your last word in like a child.

Go back to living your life as a bigot.  I'm surprised you will even stick up for LL considering he is latino after reading your previous comments about the "non english speaking criminals in NYC."

He has repeatedly been below average up until this point, what makes you think law school will be any different?  News flash: Law school is more difficult than undergrad.  Also, his LSATs were well below average as well. 

Your assertations are based on candyland bullshi# and nothing more.

Says the guy who isn't even in lawschool...

Lawschool isn't more difficult than undergrad, IMO.  That is coming from someone who has actually been to lawschool, as opposed to Erapitt, but take it for what its worth.

The hard part about lawschool is figuring out how to study, it isn't like anything you have done before and they don't tell you how to prepare.  Once you figure out how it works, it is easy.  I have done less work every semester and my grades keep going up.  After your first semester, law school is substantially less work than undergrad if you had any kind of demanding major.  If you majored in History at Easy State University, it might be harder than undergrad.


Yeah, well there is still some correlation between LSAT, College GPA, and law school success whether you want to admit it or not.  To sit here and say that someone that has been sub par in everything they have done academically is going to be a shining star in law school is ridiculous.

You are a moron.

Florida, irregardless of you being a total tool, you can't argue with me that it makes sense to transfer within a T2 for any reason other than locality.  I understand if he wants to move back home, but he should be greatful he even got into law school.  There is no debating that.  His grades are below average in a subject that is his first language and his LSAT is subpar.  I think he should be damn happy he got into a T2 and do the best he can with it.

Barely on the cusp of the T20 is still good enough to give me far better job opportunities than the "second best school in florida," jerkoff.

Whether you want to admit it or not, T1 outside of the top 25 or so, and anything above is going to be a regional education.  Is there anything wrong with that?  No, but don't sit here and argue with me about how your school is so great when in reality, it isn't.

reality check: it's not going to take anywhere near top 10% to transfer w/in tiers.  he'll have a chance if he's in the top half of the class.  tier2-tier2 is not that hard guys.  i believe latinlord has an above average ug gpa, if he maintains THAT level of academic achievement he will be able to transfer to temple.  why is this some pipe dream?  heck, he has two years to bring his gpa up to top 50% because he's going PT.  odds are in his favor.  

also, a transfer to his home state is a very practicle goal when one considers the disparities in cost of attendance between the two schoos.  is it likely that he will make top 10% and transfer to penn, no. but it's just as unlikely that he will find himself in the bottom 10%.  why?  the curve.  and it's because of the curve that he has a very good shot at transferring to temple.

I need to tell this "curve" stuff to the 17.9% of my 1L class who won't be here in the fall.  Maybe they all transferred to Penn  ::)


not to mention, I'll bet my left nut that his undergrad is somewhere you've never heard of.

If your school has a 17.9% dropout rate then you must go to a real shi#y law school.  Most schools have around a 98-99% graduation rate.

Mean, bitter, and cyncial, but it definately has some truth behind it.

Five of those six are hardly reputable institutions.  Also, with AA it might not be a fluke, if he weren't a URM he wouldn't have even received one offer.

Pump up his ego all you want, I just think he should be more focused on getting through the conditional program before he thinks about being in the top 5% of his class.  Reality check.  It isn't going to happen.

59
Oh I definately hear you and I definately say much of what I say to elicit a response.  I just wanted to emphasize that it isn't really the case with LL.  I give him props for his ambition so I honestly don't find myself laughing at him.

On the other points, I agree 110%.  The diference between myself and the tool bags on this site that like to argue with me is this: When I sign offline I get on with my life and have a wonderful time doing what I do....  When they get offline (for that hour a day when they are either sh!tting, showering, or eating) they ruminate about what a dirtbag I am lol.

P.S. I spelled difference wrong above....  I am going to fail miserably at law school  ;).

Don't take what everyone said to heart LL, its the nature of this board.  Some people are going to help you, some are going to be brutally honest, and some will be brutally honest to get a few laughs at your expense...i.e. erapitts posts in this thread.  Nothing personal. (I hope at least) I just know that there are a large number of people that would Kill to be in your position, and I'm sure people on this board have good friends who got screwed by the LSAT or themselves have been screwed by the test and are quite sensative when they see an URM making claims that he might not be happy with something that (as they see) was handed to you on a silver platter.  You can understand that right?  Thats just the way some people are man.

I don't think I fall under the category of being brutally honest to have a few laughs at his expense.  I think I just fall under the being brutally honest category.  I have nothing against LL, other than that he is from Philly ;), but that isn't personal haha.
