it couldn't hurt. do it.
Even if transferring is hard, if you don't get in is it possible to apply as a 1L and matriculate without advanced standing, ie, as a 1L?
I'm not asking if this is advisable, just if it is possible.
I TOTALLY agree. Outside of the practice of law, the name of your school doesn't matter at all
I think the biggest problem you'll have is journal. Odds are you won't get on one at your new school. Most give the line that they have a transfer write on competition, but few, if any, actually get invitations. Journal is an absolute necessity if you want to clerk after you graduate, so if that's something you're interested in, you should at least find out if there are journals where you can volunteer (I know UVA has some like this) so you have an option should you not write on.
I felt the same way with my contracts exam. I almost got into a car wreck on the drive home from the exam because i realized that I hadn't mentioned statute of frauds on the last hypo. I was certain that I would not do well (meaning, get an A or A-). I found out yesterday that I made an A and almost sh!t a brick!
