Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Did anyone transfer to Columbia / NYU / Cornell here that can speak on how transfer students are treated. Ideally, I would prefer to go to Columbia but second choice would be NYU. Grades are above the 75% of both Columbia and NYU. Just wondering if I would be treated as a reject or something as a t...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Does anyone have guidance on mass-mailing while waiting for transfer decisions. Would it be better to hold off on sending off resumes/cover letters until you have successfully transferred somewhere? How does the timeline change with transfers?

Anyone have experience with UCLA interviews? I had mine recently. fairly straightforward. Why UCLA? How was 1L? Just be polite and don't do anything crazy. Have u heard anything yet? Or did they say when decisions are usually made? Nope I only know what you know. Decisions tend to be made around ea...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Hi Nebby -- any guidance about resumes? I have a few things that I usually do not put on my 1-page resume that I'm considering putting on my xfer application resume. I'm thinking of a language program that I did in Europe and some volunteer work. I think it makes me seem more rounded out and intere...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Question:

How do you know what to write for the personal statement when the prompt has not been released yet? I would like to get started earlier than May 1 but maybe I will have to wait?

Re: Rec Letter Question

If you had him last semester and you did well that should be sufficient material. Go for it now, because end of semester will probably be busy.

Re: T30 -> T14 Chances?

Thanks for your candor.

I see that the NYU 509 has their 50th% at 3.57 and GULC's 50th% is 3.64. My assumption was just based off those numbers.

Most of the students that transfer in are from schools that are lower ranked than mine. I was thinking that I would get a boost from that.

T30 -> T14 Chances?

Re: UC Irvine Law C/O 2021

Quick plug for the on-campus apartments. (Guaranteed, if I still remember right).

Very low-cost and nice accommodations.
