Top ten to HLS

Top ten to HLS
« on: March 08, 2005, 07:30:23 AM »
Does anyone have any experience or knowledge regarding the HLS transfer process?  I will attend a top ten school this fall and would like to know how I would have to place in my class to be competitive at HLS.  I have a low undergrad gpa with a very positive trend from a tier 2 university, military/leadership experience and an lsat score in the mid 170's.  Thanks.

just how low is your Undergrad GPA?  This may have an impact on how you perform in LS?  Knowing this can also help us advice you more.

One thing specific to transferring to Harvard is their requirement that incoming transfer students be students who could have been accepted originally. That doesn't mean that you actually were accepted, but your pre- law school numbers must not be entirely beyond their range for 1L admits. Given your decent LSAT, you may be within that group, but your undergrad GPA is more important at Harvard than at other top ten schools.

Best of luck; it's a great school.
