PT friendly schools?

PT friendly schools?
« on: October 06, 2009, 11:05:58 PM »
I am a 1L in a PT evening program at a T1 school and am very interested in transferring to a higher ranked school at the end of this year, pending my grades obviously. My top choices are USC, WUSTL, and Tulane, but I am willing to consider other schools. Does anyone know if being in an evening program will hurt my chances at transferring or if I still have a shot? Any schools out there that are evening program friends in evaluating transfer applications?

You need to call the schools and ask them on a case by case basis. There is no general rule, but some schools will only consider applicants if you have a minimum number of credits. Some schools have a strict min/max rule. Some schools have PT divisions where you can do a PT to PT transfer. Some schools will let you do PT to FT if you take summer classes before 2L. Some schools will let you do PT to FT if you take a extra semester at the new school. It all depends on the school.
