T4 --> T2
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:35:58 PM »
We just got all of our grades and my cumulative for this semester was a 3.1 on a 2.8 curve. I did really well in 3 classes and not so well in 2 others which brought down my GPA. If I bring my grades up next semester, what are my chances of transferring to a tier 2? Also, does admissions look at individual grades as well as culmulative and class rank?

Thanks! :)

If you don't mind, what T2 did you transfer to?

You can PM if you want.

Thanks!  What was your rank when you applied to WUSTL?  I am trying to apply there as well.

Thanks for all the advice one time. Does anyone else have any opinions on my chances?

WUSTL has been a very well respected school for a long time, and not just for their law school.  It's not as though word just got out on this, we have summer associates from there all the time (I work in Los Angeles at one of the big firms).

I ultimately decided to go to GW but I have to say that WUSTL probably has the best looking city campus I've ever seen, and their undergrad is like 12th in US News. Their law building is magnificent, too bad they're not in DC.
