Thanks you guys for the responses they are all appreciated. I talked to CU and DU and got the numbers on how many transfers they typically let in and whether or not they take into account the school you are coming from. DU said that they don't put much weight into the school you came from and it is based on you cumulative GPA and class rank. CU on the other hand does take into account the school you are coming from. Also, I am really not looking to practice law as my first option it is my back up plan. I actually plan to go into representing athletes and becoming an attorney is just to build up the money to finance my representation of athletes. So, in terms of becoming a lawyer to work at a law firm, it is not one of my goals going into law school. I really just need the law degree to help my resume with these athletes.

For anyone wondering, DU typically takes 25 transfer/visiting students while CU takes about 12-15. Also, should I be concerned that Phoenix School of Law is a for profit school and just was founded a few years ago as well as just being ABA accredited in 2010. OCU seems to have a longer history and fits a more traditional mold. Will that matter in transferring?

I really need some help on deciding which school to attend. I have been accepted at both Phoenix School of Law and Oklahoma City University. Phoenix has offered me $6000 a year and OCU has offered $4,000 a year. For either school, I plan to transfer after my first year to one of the schools in Colorado. Does one of these schools give me a better chance to transfer over the other?

I will not have a car my first year and from the looks of it, Phoenix has a better public transportation system than OCU. I am transferring to be back where my wife is in Denver. Any help on the two schools is appreciated. Oh yeah, taking the LSAT again is not an option and staying at either school to graduate isn't unless they offer a lot of money. I'm really looking to see if Phoenix or OCU is a better option to start or are they both about equal as long as I perform and stay at the top of my class. Thanks for the help!
