best NYC community college offering programs/transfers to Columbia Law School

<p>canadian high school student needs to know if anyone on this thread knows of best colleges in the NYC state, that offer law programs that could lead to transfers to Columbia Law School?</p>

<p>I'm not sure I follow your question. Legal training in the Unites States doesn't follow the English/European model of traineeships.</p>

<p>In order to become a licensed attorney in the US, you (usually) need to graduate from a 3 year J.D. program, like that offered at CLS. In order to be admitted to a JD program, you need to have completed the equivalent of a 4 year Bachelors degree. So you can't "transfer" into CLS - you have to apply for admission subsequent to graduating college. In fact, many law students in the US have taken some time off between college and law school, some working in law related fields, but many not even that.</p>

<p>Attending a top/prestigious college isn't a requirement for entry into law school. The two main factors in law school admission are your undergraduate GPA (which needs to be high, usually a A/A- average if you're shooting for a law school like Columbia), and your score on the LSAT. The two scores combined set your baselines qualifications for admissions, which are then garnished by your personal essay and other "soft factors", each given different weight by different law schools. LSN</a> :: Welcome to has some hard numbers on what it takes to get into schools, and you can find law school discussion on Top Law Schools. But if you're applying to colleges now, don't worry about that for another year or two. Just have a chat with a pre-law counselor wherever you go to college.</p>

<p>I hope this helps.</p>
