You would have to take one in July and then wait til February for the other. Probably not a great idea since you would have to take off work for 4 months out of the year (assuming you followed Barbri).

RU-Camden accepted about 30 transfers this past year. I was one and it worked out very well for me. The faculty and students were all very helpful. FYI, RU-Newark didnt accpect any though from what i heard.
I was at my undergrad within the last week, to see the 9th Circuit hold hearings at the law school. While, waiting to get back in I saw a guy I knew from Jr. High and High school. He was the brother of a guy I used to be really good friends with, until he and his other buddies started heavily using drugs. Well, my friend's brother spent all of high school in a stupor, and fried his brain so badly that he was categorically retarded at some level. Mind you before he started doing drugs, he was exceptionally bright. The last time I saw him, he was at this place near where I live, where hippies and the like hang out, and he was clearly wasted. That was 5 years ago.

I was just hired for the summer with a prosecutor's office. I did an intership last break with the PD, and it actually helped me get the job. I live in NJ so I cant speak as to policies in other states, but I think its pretty dumb that a PD or DA wouldnt hire you cause you worked for the other side. If anything that should be an asset not a liability, its important to be able to see things from either sides perspective. As for grades, mine were luckily very good, but the DA who hired me said that grades are not important at all to them, they hire based on personality.

US Atty Office only hires attorneys with at least 2 years experience, preferably either clerkship, prosecution, etc.
I successfully transfered from a t4 to my undergrad alma mater (Rutgers) which is ranked in the mid 60's. The statement will definetly be important especially if your target school isnt generally transfer friendly. I'm assuming that you just started your first year. Your grades this year will be absolutely crucial. In my statement, I emphasized the reasons why I wanted to transfer there including family, career, and especially because they have specific programs and courses that I am interested in. You should also focus on your past achievements and why you would make a good addition to their school. Try to point out unique things about yourself. Just stay away from anything negative. Don't complain about the LSAT, or your current school, etc. good luck
Most people theat I know prefer westlaw for research but lexis has the public records search. I prefer westlaw because you dont have to put in an exact case citation to find a case, which saves time, also I find that the westlaw search engines are easier to use. Another thing about Lexis is that they have Sheppards (the traditional cite checker) as opposed to west's key cite.
