Federal appellate is tough to get.  It helps if you did an internship with a district judge who can make  the call.  I think federal bankruptcy court is bomb, only because bankruptcy is such a varied field.

I'm dying to know more about how it works.  Does anyone have any insight?

There's an awesome book for the O->A part of property by Lawrence and Mintzner.  I highly recommend it.

The sentiment that students need phenominal grades to transfer is a myth.  Many transfer students are only top half or so.  Schools can by sympathetic to students with a genuine need to be in a particular locale.

Totally.  151 is tragic.  You can do better.

You really need to look at both of these schools if you have decided to go.  Jacksonville is not fun, and Pace is not NYC.  If I were you I'd move to a state you think you might like, work for a year, take the LSAT again, and reapply.  There are a bunch of schools in the US that are little better than a scam.  Wiki "bait and switch."

Where I'm leaving and where I'm going can only increase my chances at biglaw.  If it doesn't happen, fine.  I think I'd ratehr clerk for a few years anyway.

CU resets your GPA, so do most schools because it would be unfair to compare you to other students who operate on a different curve.  Trust me, the GPA reset was a plus for me.  I did well but by no means knocked it out of the park, and I'm not holding my breath for OCI.

I don't think Stetson has OCI. You should check first.
