I modify the info above. But in the revised How to get into the Top Law schools where he beefed up the transfer section; Yale accepted 10 to 12 people from 80 to 120 applications and Stanford accepted just 5 to 10 from 80 to 100 applications. Also in Deloggio's chart, it states that you have to be the top student at your school for Yale not just 5 to 10%. Also on the transfer board someone got into Harvard last year being the #1 person in his class with a 3.87, UGPA 3.06, LSAT score 179 but he didn't get into Yale and Stanford. Someone else who went to Cornell got into Harvard with a 3.74/10%, a UGPA of 4.0, a combined LSAT of 165 but didn't get into Yale. Another person got into Harvard with a 3.9, nonlisted UGPA, LSAT 170ish. There are a bunch of Yale and Stanford rejections on the database. The only person on that board who got into Yale last year came from Northwestern, was top 7-10%, had a foreign undergrad degree and a 168 LSAT score.
One other sidenote: Stanford says it only accepts applicants to the extent that it has vacancies in the class. Yet it appears there are some years where they have NO vacancies in their class.
In these years, could it be possible *gasp* that they accept NOBODY as a transfer? Or do you think that's there to keep the number of transfer apps down?
