I think I'd worry more about whether an ABA law school would accept a non-ABA law school's credits, not the other way around
I think the reason the OP heard it was difficult was because even top grades from a lower-ranked school won't help if your LSAT isn't up to snuff or they don't need more people. Law schools accept very few transfers, usually only to replace people they lost through attrition or transfers out.
I'm a 2L at a T4 school in California. After the first year I finished in the top 10% of my class. From what I've read online and on this forum it seems that unless you have a compelling story it's usually difficult to transfer upwards to a T3 or T2 school. Just wondering if anyone has had any success by reapplying and starting at the new school as a 1L?
I don't know where you are currently attending, but moving across county to a school where you don't know anyone and all the 1L clicks have developed can be tough. I had a friend that transferred from my school to USC and she regretted the decision. Obviously that is not the case for everyone and maybe it will be a good decision it is personal for everyone, but if your doing well somewhere it may not be worth rocking the boat.
You seems like a problem child that is why you are getting school transfer once again you can request for the stay.
Can anyone offer any tips or advice when it comes to drafting a transfer personal statement?
Also, in terms of transfer admissions, does anyone know what the admissions committee is looking for?
