Questions about transferring to NYU or Columbia
« Reply #2 on: January 27, 2008, 06:12:39 PM »
I am currently at Fordham, just got first semester grades and have over a 3.9  What are my chances of transferring to Columbia or NYU if I stay around there or drop a bit?

Also, when should I apply?  Would it make sense to submit most of my application in march or april and then just forward my update transcript once I get second semester grades or should I just wait to send everything in until I get my second semester grades?

And one more question, does anyone know if transfers can get on law review or journals and how that works?

Thanks.

you will get in, but you should aim higher - hys. i got in with a 3.56 from fordham, so there you go.

at nyu you can write on to law review/other journals - there is a separate competition for transfers (although law review only takes about 2 or 3).

Thanks for the info.  I am not aiming higher because I don't want to leave NYC.  Also, do you have any idea when the separate competition is at NYU?

I have a similar question.  I have a 3.946 at University of Pittsburgh (ranked 57) and am currently just shooting to get into GULC EA because never know what second semester grades are going to be like.  If I can maintain a GPA around where I am at do you think I would have a chance to jump to a school like NYU or Columbia or is that too much of a leap.  Thanks.
