By request, here is a transferring student's board.  This is in the students section of the website because you have to be a law student before you can transfer.

This fact shouldn't limit the discussion to current law students.  Understandably, a lot of pre-law applicants are interested in transferring even before starting school.  Feel free to discuss that interest here.

Are you a BU student who made law review? With the first initial "M"?

Just heard from Columbia.  I'm in as a 2L for next year, transfering from a 4th tier.  Not bad, huh?

What were your #s like? Did you participate in any orgs your first yr?  Why do you think they selected you?  I am a 1L and am planning on transferring out and would like to be in a large city.  There is not so much info re: transfers.

I was under the impression that the tranfer process takes place over the summer (with few exceptions - schools that base their decisions on the first semester grades during the spring semester). So I do not see how you could know that you have been admitted to Columbia as a tranfer in November.

It really depends on what school you are seeking to transfer from. In general, to tranfer to top 1st tier schools, you need to be: top 1-3 (and I do not mean percent) - 4th tier, top 1-5% in 3rd tier, top 10% in 2nd tier.
