What a cheap ploy.  They're trying to make everyone feel wanted so they can increase their number of transfer applicants and turn down even more people.  I've heard the facilities there are so run down that it's like going to an inner city high school anyway...at least that's what I tell myself to feel better....

I got the same letter too. Probably is a generic reject letter, but doing it in a way that they think wil make feel "better" about being rejected. ???

The facilities are bad...but man, there ARE inner city high schools around Boalt, and Boalt looks like Harvard compared to them. If you want to make yourself feel better just say you didn't want to live in an Oakland suburb (and have to deal with all those inner city kids mugging ands fighting people at night).
Awesome: UCLA (20K/3 years), Boalt, GULC, NYU, USC
Could be cooler: Harvard, Chicago (held),
Shmucks: Stanford, Notre Dame
They're just lukewarm on me: Michigan, UVa, Northwestern, Columbia

Yup.  Looks like the same generic letter they send to all the rejected applicants.

Why the two letters?

Because the people who got the transfer letter probably didn't have high enough GPA's and LSATs but Boalt still thought they would be good students, though accepting them would have meant lowering their stats for the USNWR rankings.

I got the transfer letter. Probably not going to transfer from nyu though. don't think it's numbers related, at least in my case.
