Chances at transferring to Columbia
« on: July 27, 2005, 04:24:10 PM »
Anyone tell me what my chances are.  I finished number 2 in my section at BU (they don't rank by whole class, but it would be high top 10%), but my lsat score and undergrad gpa isn't amazing, do I have a good shot at Columbia?  Thanks.

Hasn't Columbia's transfer deadline passed? They're already making decisions. Check out the database on this site http://groups.yahoo.com/group/transferapps/
Good luck.

Ozo,

I am superimpressed that you finished 2 in your class - how did you do it? Any tips you could provide on studying and preparing before law school, asking for recs from teachers, etc.

Did you go out at all - did you study all the time or just strategically?

you may want to check out transferlawschools.com.  Some guy that transferred to Columbia set up a website about transferring.

I think you will have an excellent shot at Columbia with that rank coming from BU.  Have you checked out the Yahoo group for transfer app stats from prior years?

And I don't think their deadline has passed.
