I am attending a bottom T4 school (ST. Thomas, FL) and of course I am planning to transfer after my 1L to the highest ranked school possible. I have spent the last 3 months in Dominique, a small island in the caribbean West Indies, just enjoying the end of my free time as best as I saw fit which includes getting my SCUBA licence, snorkeling, sailing, reading and relaxing in some of the world's most beautiful beaches and having fun in the sun. Now that I am going back to the real world I am thinking that maybe I shoud take one of those Law Preview courses to make sure I have the "Upper Hand" so I can transfer. Does anyone have any experience with those?
Notice that the question is not "Should I transfer or not?", that decision has been made already. I am not taking loans to go to school, any school, and even though St. Thomas is giving me some money for my 157 LSAT no other school would take the chance with my 2.4 GPA. So the only option would be to transfer or apply earlier next year, which at 28 I don't want to do.
