Transferring / Scattered 1L curriculum and chances for transferring
« on: June 14, 2007, 01:57:53 AM »
This may be too early since I'm a 0L until August but I'm starting at 4T which has made some 1L curriculum changes. Most schools require Torts I & II, Contracts I & II, Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Criminal Law, Property I & II, legal writing by whatever name and research and one other course, with a little variation. The school I'm attending splits torts and contracts: According to the master grid, a student takes Torts I in the spring and Torts II in the fall of the second year; Contracts I in the fall of the first year and Contracts II in the fall of the third year and I think property might be split. They also just notified all incoming students that unless we specify, criminal procedure has been bumped into the third year or we spend an extra $2K to take it our first year.

What are my chances for transferring with this scattered curriculum? I may be paranoid but it looks like they did this to prevent students from transfering.

Has anyone else on here already started there? Is anyone starting this fall? Am I the only one who will admit attending a T4?

Non-Traditional Students / Nontrad forums

This may seem slightly off-topic for the board but, as requested by the administrators, I moved on to the students & graduates boards because I'm starting this fall. I'm sure I'm not the only nontrad, and it probably sounds like whining, but I was crucified because I admitted I was going to a T4 school. I was making inquiries about my chances of transferring with the first-year curriculum being what it is at the school. I got some good advice, that I took, and learned a few valuable things but otherwise I was told my legal career was over before it began.

I want to transfer to be with my boyfriend, already a lawyer so he can't just move, and because it increases my chances of getting a job in that area post-graduation. Maybe I'm just not ambitious enough for this.

Anyway, does anyone else want a nontrad board on students & graduates?
