I dont know about "killing" any chance for making law review; after all many schools will make him wait until the end of his second year anyway if he's part time.  The issue is whether a transfer within a tier is going to be to your advatage.  Obviously not.  Also why go through the headache just becuase you want to live near home.  IU-Indy isn't a T20 but its not a 3rd or 4th tier either.  In the region (key word region), its respected.  You're going to pretty much have to make your name there becuase in the absence of a reputation, all they have to go on is the "known commodity" i.e. your school. After a few years, you could perhaps go back home.  Find your niche though man, if you surround yourself with the walls you lived in your whole life, you may never reach your potential.  (sorry fro the tony robbins comment) Its crazy though, and not to get down on you, but you start the 15th of May.  Therefore your probably already there or in the process of getting an apartment.  I just hate to see you go through this when it really should have happened well before you opened up Google Maps for the best route from Philly to Indy.

Maybe, but in a situation like this, and given the competition in the field, you can't blame him for wanting to better his situation...On the other hand, you might be very right if all he wants to do is transfer within the 2nd tier.  If its becuase you're away from home and want to be in the area, maybe you'll feel otherwise after living there for a while.  It may be good to get out of the life you had before and start somewhere else from the ground up....On an aside, not to try to call erapitt an a-hole or anything, but you invite people's comments about your numbers when you post personal stuff like that on the internet.  I saw a number of threads congratulating you saying you beat the odds and all that.  My question though is, do you want to be known as the kid who "slipped" into law school by your peers?  I wouldn't.  My numbers weren't horrible but I didn't choose to post them becuase I know there's always someone better.  Call me insecure, maybe I am.  Either way I didn't do as well as I wanted to and have a lot of respect for the people who did do very well.

      Well, lets not make the "conditional" thing an issue.  I'm sure you'll do fine, and there is nothing wrong with looking ahead a little.  I just find it suprising that you posted so many good things about the school and now you're talking about getting out.  Is it the city?  Do you miss home?  That's what I'm wondering.  Also I looked into the summer program and I did not see Civ pro I, larc I or Torts I as part of the curriculum.  So, I think you might be mistaken about taking a lighter load in the fall.  Just so you're not caught off guard, I'd double check that.  I think your "Lighter Load" will be in the form of being a part time student.  So your load will be lighter relative to the full timers.  Let us know LL  I am considering the school as I was accepted to their full time program in March and would like to see why there was such a drastic change in attitude.

LatinLord, I am just curious, do you not like Indy?  I have been following your previous posts and I got the impression that you were super excited about going to the school.  Also, if you are part time at Indy, what classes are you taking in the summer that will lighten the course load.  From my understanding all p-time students will take Torts, Civ Pro, and LARC I their first semester.  Are you taking any of these in your program?
