I was wondering if any current Boalt law students could held me out with this question.
I am a current 1L at a T10 law school similarly ranked. I was admitted to Boalt, and for financial reasons, chose to go elsewhere. I regret the decision every single day. I am still waiting on one of my first semester grades (grrr) but the other three are A, B+, B+. On Boalt's website, it states that they usually only accept transfer applicants who are in the top 3-5% of their class. Obviously, this is not me.
I had heard that in order to do a so-called "lateral transfer" from an equally good school, you only really have to be in the middle of the pack, as long as you have a compelling reason for wanting to transfer (I do). But maybe it is different for Boalt? I know they tend to do things their own way...
Any Boalt students who can offer advice on this?
