Grades from the third tier --> T6

Grades from the third tier --> T6
« on: June 01, 2009, 08:27:08 PM »
Hey guys,

I thought I would post a question here and get the collective wisdom of the board. I am currently at a TTT looking to transfer to a T14, hopefully a T6.

My fall term GPA was a 4.0 and ranked in the top 1%. This term I nearly had straight As again (including a few high papers), but I had an off day and got a B in one of my courses. My cumulative grade-point is still above a 3.95. Not sure what my class ranking is yet.

I know that to transfer up as far as I would like will take near perfect grades. So my question is: To the extent that transferring that high from a school ranked as mine is even possible, do you think the one B this term will kill my application?

Thanks.

You never know if you don't apply.  I am top 10% at a T4 and made it into the T14.  I think you should apply and hope for the best.

 :)You're an inspiration and a positive person.  I wish you'd visit the prelaw board and set the naysayers on that board (many of them haven't even begun law school) straight.

Except that you folks, by being in the top 10%/top 1%, are not the normal story from your schools.
