Tier 4 to Tier 1 transfer...possible?
« on: October 31, 2011, 12:26:54 AM »
Is it at all conceivable for a person to complete his or her first year at a Tier 4 school, after having done extremely well (but with a low LSAT score), and transfer to a Tier 1 school? What is the highest level to which a person in this position could hope to transfer?

I had a frient transfer from T4 to a Top 20.  Not sure where he was in placement, but had either booked every class or was within a few points of booking every class.  Not sure LSAT is so relevent when transfering b/c law school performance shows actual aptitude where LSAT is a measure of likely aptitude.

GTLC takes lots of T4 transfers.  W&L takes some, I'm sure there are many more.  Got to do the research so you can figure out where to apply.  It is possible, I have known people that have done it.  Good luck.
