Transferring / Re: Transfer out of Duquesne University
« on: January 17, 2011, 03:18:40 PM »
Thanks for your insight as well! I have heard all law schools teach the same thing, each with a different price tag. Thats the benefit of doing well in undergrad and on your LSATs I guess.
I guess my decision will come down to where I want to spend my next three years (not cold Pittsburgh hopefully), and what is the least expensive. My situation is unique because I have this fall back job in PA with my uncle, so I don't care as much about school rankings. I'm basically just sick of Pittsburgh, Duquesne, and my boring job.
Anyone know the chances I will have getting into Stetson or NCCU? 154 LSAT, 3.0 gpa undergrad, and most like top 15-20% of my 1L class. I would like to stay in evening school, but would go to day if the transfer was available.

Thanks for your insight. Using the transfer ploy sounds like a great way to squeeze some more money out of Duquesne lol. I'm not worried about going to a different state then where I will end up. I see this as a chance to get away for atleast 3 years, and maybe more while I'm young and don't have many commitments, but I don't want to screw myself by going to a terrible school either.
What is the perception of Duquesne's law school? I always thought it was good, but I've been in Pittsburgh since 2005.
Anyone else?

I'm a 1L evening student at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. I am considering a transfer after my first year to a couple of schools. I am having trouble finding any valueable info about this process, and whether it is worth it. I will most likely finish in the top 20% of my class after this year. I have a full-time job in Pittsburgh working for a company that procure's records for law firms. Pittsburgh is a great city, but I've been here for too long, and need a change of pace.

The schools I am seriously considering are North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC, and Stetson in Tampa, FL. I was also considering Florida Coastal and NOVA Southeastern, but I would have to really have a good reason to transfer there. Can anyone give me some insight into this process, my chances, pro/cons of the schools, etc.

I have an uncle that offered me a job at his small firm in PA after I get out of school, but I'm not sure if that is the path I want to take yet. Please any comments would help!
