Transferring / Re: Visiting Semester
« on: April 27, 2008, 12:42:30 PM »
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

From this website...http://www.outlinedepot.com/schooloutlines.aspx?schoolid=77
  She taught Income Tax at the school and not wills, it may be her first year teaching it. If you can't find a specific outline for her class, try and find another one that matches your textbook. Good luck

What city do you want to end up going?  Which schools are you considering? 

One thing you have to take into consideration is cost, especially when you're currently paying in-state tuition at your current law school. 



Cost is not much of a concern most of the schools are around the same b/c they are privite or would be less b/c there is a public school there. Right now i'm paying out of state tutition. If I am able to visit a school in my home state I could live closer to home and for much cheaper especially if i can go the school which has instate tuition.

I already posted this in the general board but thought i would post here too.


I'm curious to hear about experiences of students Visiting another law school for their 3rd and final year of law school?? How was the transition? Was it worth it?? For visiting you still get your home school degree but can take courses at another school. It is like studying abroad with another school. Grades don't count toward home school gpa, but you need a C in the class to get credit.....

If transfering doesn't work or isn't an options, visiting is another shot to go into the location where you plan to practice.


Gracias
