Jesus H, your LRW was 4 credits?

Dear lord, that would be awful. Well, obviously not if you got the A. It would be awful for me. Gogo B first semester.. B+ this semester, MAYBE an A-, if I blew the brief out of the water.

- CLS (first choice under any of HYS)
- NYU

*Very* excited about beginning a new, more rewarding cycle this year.

We'll find out when my grades come back.  I'm not planning on applying anywhere unless I have a reasonable shot.

If I keep my grades at a competitive level:
Columbia
NYU
Duke
Penn

If I get the same grades as last semester (wouldn't bet my life on it), I'll give away my money to:
Harvard
Yale

lrw was year long, but we only get one final (4 hour credit) grade at the end of spring semester. so, that's taken care of. waiting three grades.

think i have a reasonable shot at nyu/cls if i stay top 2 or 3%? i'm at 30s/40s school, lots of public interest work this year with national organization, etc.

"Do you think that I have a reasonable shot at NYU/Columbia with a 177 and a 3.9 with a bunch of soft factors?"

Seriously, if you don't have a shot with top 2/3% with public interest work from a T1, no one has a shot at transferring to NYU/Columbia.

I'll join this party.  I'm planning on applying to the following:

Applying regardless of my GPA:

UC Hastings
UC Davis
UCLA

If I have a "strong" GPA, I'll add:

Berkeley

If my GPA is absolutely terrific, I may apply to some of the T-14 (but obviously I want to be back in California).

[And I may consider throwing one at USC, even though, it seems as though they don't take many transfers.]

lol, I love how we're all so worried about this semester.  Worst case scenario, we all end up at GULC together!
