Does anyone think that there would be any sense in trying to transfer from Capital to OSU after the first year? I know that my numbers aren't strong enough to get into OSU, so I didn't even apply, but I want to go there for 2 main reasons; 1) my cousin graduated from OSU Law School last year and immediately got a great job @ a Columbus firm and I'm sure that she could help me network in Columbus, 2) b/c I'm really interested in International Law (undergrad is Foreign Affairs/Political Science) and Capital has no IL track or concentration. That being said, I'm sure my cousin's connections would be helpful if I went to Capital as well, plus the $11k per yr. Capital offered for tuition could mean that I graduate w/ under $50k law school debt. Does anyone know if it is hard to transfer out of Capital? I know the admissions process has driven me crazy this far and I'm not sure that it would be worth the hassle to do it again!
I'm considering going to OSU next year, and my husband to Capital. He would like to transfer to OSU later as well... I have asked around about this and the answer I have been told is that you can only transfer to OSU if "your LSAT and UG GPA stats would have been competitive with the regularly admitted students"... Some schools have this sort of policy. SO you have to do really well your first year, and have good stats too. I wonder though, if you were kind of close to the bottom of the group they accept, would that be considered competitive? I mean, isn't your actual 1L performance a better predictor of how well you will do in law school than an LSAT?
