Considered visiting at peperdine or w&m, the first for the location, the second for the instate tuition. I probably wont do it though because there really isnt a good time to do it. My lease is a year and doesnt allow subletting, plus it would be a pain to move all my stuff for a semester/year then have to move back after school is done. I think the better option is to clerk in a state if you wish to experience the location. Most firms give relocation bonuses, so you can take the bar, move when you finish the bar, then have the firm cover moving back.
Your not supposed to go to visit a place just to visit (although it is called that) You should go there in situations where you are far from the place where you want to practice and will move there anyway... And it could only benefit you to go there and start looking for jobs, network, learn courses that are on your bar, become aclemented in the area... and if you are already from the state to possibily get cheaper tuition...
That is the reason to visit, it would be a pain to go to another school and actually visit there and move back... not much point to it either.
2 other people in my class are visiting. 1 for her husband who got a job in AZ the other wants to practice in another state and is moving with his wife to FL.
I'm an east coaster, found a job on the east coast, my BAR is a lot different than the bar ofthe state where my school is at, and i would pay less. Seem practical
