More About the Authors
Inside the Book
In this book, Carrabis and Haimovitch share not only their own experiences with transferring law schools, but also offer testimonials of others who have made similar jumps—including students who transferred into the Ivy League.
In addition to personal experiences, you'll also get a great deal of information about the practicalities of transferring law schools, including a sample transfer statement, resume, and letters of recommendation. They also include information on the effect of transferring on on-campus interviewing (OCI), journals, and other law school activities.
Chapter headings include:
- To Harvard I Will Go
- The Transfer Mindset
- Something to Gain, Something to Lose: Should I Leave If I Can?
- Narrowing Your Schools
- Succeeding at Your New School and Beyond
One of the best resources in this book for transfer students, though, is the chart of transfer statistics for selected law schools; with these you can get an idea of how many students apply to and then get into some of the top law schools in the country.
Rating & Recommendation
I give this book five stars and highly recommend it to anyone considering transferring law schools. In about 150 pages, you'll read about all the factors you need to consider when transferring, the pros and cons, and also how to be a successful transfer student in school and thereafter. Let this book be your guide.
