I am currently in a T4 school. Ranked top 1% (at least until the end of the semester). High enough GPA that I shouldn't have any issues grading onto Law Review at the end of the semester (i was a spring admit so don't have enough units to be eligible for LR until the end of this fall semester). I made the Moot Court team this summer. I am also a TA for legal writing and would be again next semester.
I am thinking about trying to transfer out (to Florida State) in spring (they indicate tehy do accept transfers in the spring). Am I crazy? I know I know.. T4 vs T1 should be a no brainer. I am just hoping I am not shooting myself in the foot by giving up Moot Court and my current class rank (and law review) by transfering out.
I just went through OCI and it sucked. We had very few firms, and while I did get callbacks at all three (top) firms I applied with, I didn't get any offers. I think my school name is a big hinderance. Oh, plus FSU is state tuition so financially MUCH better for me...
any thoughts? Overall and/or advice?
thanks in advance
