LSAT score and transferring
« on: June 08, 2005, 05:04:57 PM »
So here's the deal...I applied to a bunch of schools this year, got into a few and waitlisted at my top choice.  As a result of the waitlist, I decided to go ahead and take the June LSAT in hopes of getting a higher score so I could get off of the list.  Turns out, I had a crappy test day (again) and don't think I went up.  I am, however, already in at a few schools.  Question is this:  do I cancel the score or take the hit, go to the school I am already in at and just try to transfer out after my first year?

Do law schools look at the lsat for transfer students?

If you do very well at the school you are going to you should be able to transfer, but if you do not do well transfering is almost totally out of the question.

Don't mean to steal the thread but...
what would be considered "well enough to transfer?"
This past year I recieved a cum gpa of 3.5 at Western State.
I've applied as a transfer to all the UC's and other Mcgeorge.
So far only heard from Mcgeorge, accepted.
Would anyone have any idea of my chances at the UC's with my ok scores at Western State?

I am also referring to law schools
My 1L gpa was 3.5, and Mcgeorge is a law school in sacramento.
The UC's I was referring to were Davis (king), Berkely (Boalt), Hastings, UCLA

not like the month-old thread was going anywhere fast, but, hey go ahead. 


OP:  study hard and consider your transfer options.  sometimes doing really well (well enough to transfer) and staying at the school is better than going to another school and being in the bottom half.
