Is it worth transferring Catholic P/T to American P/T
« on: June 15, 2009, 05:21:02 PM »
If someone is a strong B student in Catholic's evening program, does it make sense to transfer to American's evening program (if given the chance)? Assume that the individual hasn't developed strong relationships with peers or professors... Catholic hovers around 95, American around 45...

Assuming cost is the same?  Sure.

seriously..if the cost is the same you have nothing to loose.  heck..since when you transfer usually your grades from the old school dont factor in..you might take off in the coming years giving you another chance to excel

If you are paying full freight at Catholic and would rather go to AU, go for it. However, do not expect a substantial increase in job opportunities.

If cost is more or less the same, do it.

uh...of course.  American ranks higher than my school (Mason) for P/T and looks like they will completely surpass us next year overall - based on Mason's LSAT problems and because of our declining state budget :-(

Most big law in DC only recruit from GULC, American, and GW.
