What Schools Accept Early Action Transfers?
« on: January 15, 2006, 06:53:46 PM »
What schools, besides Georgetown (GULC), have early action transfers?  I am a 1L who has just completed my first semester and looking to transfer to top 25 school.   Any information would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.

definitely check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/transferapps/. that's the HQ for those in the top of their classes who want to transfer.

my question is, what tier is your current school and what's your ranking?

Dumb question but what's the significance of being an early action transfer? I'm also looking to transfer, and if applying as an early action transfer would help my chances to the particular school i'm looking at, then I'd do it.

Bradz...when do schools usually let you know if you apply EA?
Our grades were just submitted a couple of days ago, so they should be coming any day now. I'm at a T4 looking to transfer not for prestige but for location. I'd be fine with making a lateral transfer, however if I could get into a T2 or T1, I'd take it. Do any of you think the following numbers are accurate?

T4 to T4: Class rank between 50% to 33%
T4 to T3: 33% and below
T4 to T2: 20% and below
T4 to T1: 10% and below
T4 to T14: 5% and below


I've checked the Yahoo board but unfortunately, there aren't too many people on that message board who have made lateral transfers. Also, I've talked to admissions about transferring to Widener (PA) and they told me that their looking for top 33% for transfer applicants. Do you think this is b/c a lot of their transfer applicants go to non-ABA accredited schools or do you think this is just standard for many T4 schools?

JL,

GULC and Case-Western are the only two schools that offer EA transfer admission. Last year, the #1 and #2 kids from Boyd went to GULC via EA so you should be good should you want to go that route.
