You have to think about some things when you think about transferring:
1) Would I mind graduating from this school that I am currently at? Can I introduce myself as so and so with a law degree from this school. Can you sit in your offfice with a degree from such and such school on your wall. If you don't mind then, you can move on to the next question.
2) Would I mind staying the area after I graduate, if I am unable to transfer? Highly important considering transferring is not a guarantee and so if you cannot leave the school and it is a regional school where your grades are not good enough to transfer, do you mind working in that area until you are able to build up your work experience and move back out to SoCal?
After those questions are answered by yourself you can begin to proceed with the rest of the process, but those things are highly important.
You also have to think with your GPA, is it really that bad to sit out a year and get into one of my preferred choices or go to a school where I might end up and not be happy? If you are able to get to a 150 you will get into some TTT or mayeb even a T2 in CA. If you did not sign up for a class last time, I would suggest doing that the 2nd time around.
I hope this helps...
