Transfer from Thomas Cooley to Michigan?
« on: June 15, 2004, 05:51:50 PM »
I have 7 years of work experience and just decided in April to go to law school. I missed most schools deadlines. I have a 2.85 GPA from Michigan and I am a Michigan resident. I took the June LSAT. My thoughts are to go to Cooley for a year and transfer to Michigan. I know that i must be 10% in my class to be considered. Do I have a chance to get in? I don't want to apply to Michigan for next year because my 2.85 won't cut it. If I do really well at Cooley will I have a chance?

I seriously doubt even if you were top 10 percent from Cooley, you could get in.  Coming from such a lower ranked law school, Michigan might at least want you to have been within some kind of shouting distance of being a freshman admit, but your GPA doesn't cut it.

I say contact Michigan and look into their transfer policies, but it doesn't look good.

I remember Lavia saying something about a friend of hers transferring from Cooley to UM after a year. might want to search the boards or private message her.

did you ace the june LSAT?

if you did, then you should probably be able to get into michigan.

apply for fall 2005, you may have a fighting chance.

LSAT is the great equalizer.
