I am just thinking of possible back-up plans in case I don't get into any T2's this year. Before, I always just thought I would try again next year, but I've realized that one year of work experience is not going to do much. So my question is, is it a better decision to try to transfer out of a T3/T4 into a T2 or just wait 1 year to try again?

Note: Waiting two years is not an option for me. I really wouldn't even want to wait 1 year because 1 year of we is not going to benefit me much personally or resume wise. Traveling is not an option because of my financial situation, or rather lack of. The only difference would be another chance at getting a better LSAT score. But then again, T3's/T4's aren't really ALL that bad and the fact that I can transfer would be tempting.

Btw, I have a 3.46 and am practicing in the 160's for the Dec. LSAT but I always like to consider my options.  ;)

Life doesn't end because you don't get into a top school.  A friend of mine went to Akron, and is now making six figures at a large firm.  It can happen.

A 3.46/160+ can get you into a few T1's. I wouldn't worry about it.

but if your #s turn out less, i doubt a year of avg we will make a big difference

that's what i'm saying. so in that case, do you think i would be better off potentially just going to a t3/t4 and then trying to transfer my way up?

i know i have pretty good stats, but lsat's are tricky..

I'd rather be able to do this than score a 180 on the LSAT.
