I am in a peculiar situation in my law school career and am looking to transfer. I recently withdrew from law school during my 2L 2nd semester due to a tragic event in my personal life. I'm at a T4 school somewhere in the top 25%. My cumulative GPA is not stellar due to a poor 1st semester GPA (didn't figure out IRAC) but my cumulative GPA improved by 0.4 two semesters later and have made dean's list since. Wrote-on law review (2nd best casenote), published, and one of my arguments have been quoted by a law professor in a law review article. I see that people on here from T4 schools are usually in the top 5% when transferring to a T1. Because of the conflict between my bad class rank vs. strong soft factors, I think it's a wildcard if I shoot for T1. Any comments on my chances at Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, or maybe a T2 like Georgia State?
I was there on a full scholarship. After I withdrew, the scholarship went. It's not worth paying $30K+ a year for a T4 school to me.
I'm very sorry, but I don't feel comfortable talking about it... I do have a few affordable T4 safe schools on my list.
