I know Jacy, and am willing to bet $10 she makes law review.

There is a yahoo group called transferapps that you should join. They have really good info about transferring, and it isn't the same conjecture that we get here. The yahoo site has people actually in the midst of the process.
Just for the record everyone: I was not encouraging the OP to file a BK. It doesn't make sense in this particular situation.
The undue harship discharge of student loans in practice is very rare. We had a client who was mentally ill and could not work at all. They denied a DC to her. As a matter of fact, in our district, we have never even heard of a successful harship DC of a student loan.
I myself paid off huge amounts of debt without filing a BK by working with my creditors. My advice to anyone dealing with debt is to DEAL with it. Don't put off discussions with creditors because you are worried or scared. The longer you wait, the worse it will become. Also, don't lie to your creditors. We see lots of people who get sued b/c they jerked their creditors along for too long and they got tired of it.
They may have an easier time with men, but other women (and we do end up in positions of power sometimes despite not having implants or a father who owns the firm) will make it harder for really attractive women. Women can be catty and lots of smart (but not stunning) women I know tend to view other women as looks obsessed or bimbos.
I think Leaf has a good point in that it's not just the workload, busy-ness, and distance that can be rough on relationships, but the fact that all of a sudden you're immersed in a totally different world which your SO cannot relate to. You will end up talking about law school all the time. Your SO will come to law school functions and be totally bored. You will hang out with your SO's friends and feel like you have nothing to say to them because your entire existence now revolves around law school. This is not something that I anticipated happening at all, but it happened to me, and yeah, in my 1L section we've had many relationship casualties. However, sure, plenty of people stay together.
This is Exactly what I think will happen, and my SO is in denial about it. I really want him to realize that my life won't revolve around "our life" while I am in LS and that he is going to be bored or lonely or a combo of the two sometimes. He is in a rose-colored glasses stage right now.
OMG! This is ridiculous!
If you believe in this crap, it will probably occur. I am much more confident and competent than the men I work with. While I am not goregeous, I am not a dog either, but I am not about to "doll myself up" so that I can be respected.

Honey, the standard for grading PT students is NEVER different. The reason they say PT is for those who work is that they take FEWER CLASSES than the FT students.
If they graded easier for the PT students, your degree would be worthless when employers found out about it.
Please don't repeat that rant to anyone else...it makes you sound ridiculous.
I got my undergrad degree PT, but was in class with FT students. The classes were just as difficult, but since I only had 2-3 compared to 4-6 for FT students, I had no problem getting the work done while managing a law firm 50+ hours a week.
The school expects that with half the classes, you should be able to balance work/school. If you can't it's your problem - not the school's.
