probably. there's a yahoo group for law school transfers; they have a good database you can use to try and see what your chances are like. do a google search or something.

edit: i think it's called transferapps

Current Law Students / Re: Warrants (Johnson V. US, 333 US 10)
« on: January 25, 2007, 05:11:01 PM »
the general rule is that you need probable cause + a warrant; absent those a search is presumptively unreasonable. however, there are numerous exceptions to the warrant requirement (ex: search incident to arrest; stop and frisk, etc.).

this was *clearly* a search. the cops went into the guy's hotel room. surely the guy has a reasonable expectation of privacy in the hotel room. (note - smelling the opium wasn't a search, but the entry into room was.) since this doesn't fall into any of the exceptions to the warrant requirement, the evidence must be suppressed.

gilbert for property, hands down (written by dukeminier)

for con law, chemerinsky is the generic advice, but i didn't use it; i used e&e, which i liked, but my con law grade was average so there you have it.

think its worth giving up a full ride?

probably not. you'll get a great job either way. if you go to a school like ucla or something, and want to work in la, i'm sure there are tons of ucla grads working at large la law firms, so you have alumni support. (translation - if you're at a good regional school, and want to work in that region, your law school will be a known commodity and you will not be at a disadvantage. you will have the prestige of your law firm on your resume, and people will know that you're smart/qualified.)

As far as time spent on law review, you're in a position to do just as much as is necessary to not get kicked off.

haha, credited.

there's no reason why a top school is 'out of the question.' you kicked ass. you're probably in the top 5% or so. that gives you a great shot at a top 10 school.
