Transfer

The Admissions Committee reviews applications from transfer students according to ABA Standards. A transfer applicant must meet the following:

  • The student currently attends a fully-approved ABA law school.
  • The Barry Law general admissions application must be completed with "transfer applicant" marked accordingly.
  • The student is in "good standing" and "eligible to return" to that institution as documented by a Letter of Good Standing.
  • An official transcript from the current law school must be submitted. An unofficial (student version) transcript may be submitted initially for the admissions decision.
  • Generally, a 2.5 law GPA is required for transfer consideration.
  • The CAS report must be submitted for review of the LSAT scores, undergraduate GPA, and two recommendation letters.
  • A personal statement explaining the reason for the intended law school transfer must be submitted.

Please Note: A maximum of 30 credits may be transferred. Only credit from courses where a student earned a grade of C or better may be transferred.
