IOne thing I also noticed, which is at odds with my last point, very few people transfer into to BU (6 in the last year reported on the LSAC website); whereas a little more than twice that amount transfer out of BU per year (13) -- granted, the figures are somewhat meaningless without knowing numbers of applicants, # accepted, and # matriculated. I find it interesting that b/w BC and BU -- virtually equal schools in my opinion -- the numbers are basically flipped (BC = 17 transfer ins, 6 out; BU 6 transfer in, 13 out). I don't really want to speculate on the cause, but it seems like something is going on if more people are transferring out than in when transferring up in the rankings won't necessarily increase your job prospects all that much. Maybe I'm naive. Opinions?
