As with all works of art, of course, there's an artistic element as well. So, it's not enough to simply submit papers and files on time. What is done must be done so that it's pleasing to those who see it: the admissions committee. (Or for transfers, often just one person: the dean of admissions.) Like all former transfer students, we painted our canvases. And as with nearly all novices, we made mistakes. These mistakes cost us time, money, and maybe even acceptance possibilities. The transfer process is full of quirks that a novice--any novice--will not see coming. With this book you will be prepared, and you will prepare your own work of art. After years of effort and sacrifice, don't ruin your portrait with needless errors. Instead, create the masterpiece that will get you into the law school of your dreams.

Yet this is more than just our combined experiences. We are lucky to be joined by numerous contributors, including Jacqueline Pace, who transferred to Harvard Law School; Robert Brayer, who transferred to UC-Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law; and Neil Wehneman, who graduated from Indiana University School of Law summa cum laude. We have also included interviews with Dean Kari A. Mattox (University of Florida); Dean Edward Tom (UC-Berkeley); and Dean Jason Trujillo (University of Virginia).
