I've applied to Vandy, Georgetown, and GW so far, and am planning to do Chicago ED.

I ended up at NYU after spending too much money on various transfer deposits. So far transferring has definitely been the right decision for me. Feel free to ask me questions here or PM.

tis a joke.

Nothing wrong with Brown at all. It's a fantastic school, but those are not the institutions that people would jump to place it as peers with.

Granted, the post was made a bit too hastily without close enough reading. The thread was bumped immediately after this whole GULC debacle, so I thought the above poster was putting down GULC (obviously wrong with the date the top post was made). Mistakes were made.

Checking in!

School Tier: Mid-TT
GPA: 3.70
Class Rank: Top 5-6%
CALI(s): 1
Summer: DOJ in DC
Strong softs and recs, for what it's worth

You guys think the ratings bump will open some new spots? Or cause GULC to actually restrict the class size?

You should be good to go. I had almost identical stats but my school was TTTT, and I got in.

IDK why anyone would want to transfer to a non-t13 law school anymore

Because s/he wants to work in Biglaw and can't get into one of the top 13 schools...

People on this thread are clearly putting in the work to put themselves in a position to advance their careers as far as they can. No need to dump on their successes with your sarcastic, douchey comments.

Don't feed the trolls. This guy has 50+ posts in the past week trying to make "T13" happen. The rankings are based on 2015 figures. The class of 2016 at GULC crowd-sourced their firm placement and found that over 50% went to the biggest firms on the East Coast and CA. Doesn't include Art III FC's and those who opted out of Biglaw. The whole ranking adjustment is clearly political, and will likely revert based on recent figures. Maybe GULC will actually lower its class size now.

If there are any former transfers, or people with personal knowledge, I'd love to hear about transfer students luck with EIW here (or in general).

Thanks and good luck to everyone!



I don't know the stats, but of the 7 transfers I know (including myself), 6 of them got Biglaw offers via EIW, and the other is doing a JAG program. Obviously those numbers aren't indicative of transfers in general, but transfers definitely have a decent shot at landing something during EIW.

I actually didn't go to Brown, but I think most people would place it in line with those other schools as right below HYPS in terms of undergrad prestige. In any case, Brown is undoubtedly a fantastic school.

Best of luck to everyone applying to GULC!
