Several months back I attended a panel discussion.  An admin. guy from Fordham was there.  He was asked directly about transferring from PT to FT, and he said that it can be done but they were working to discourage it.  The other issue he mentioned was with PT students who don't actually work full-time jobs.  He had to attend a meeting with "real" PT students who were complaining about these "fake" PT students.  From that discussion, i gleaned that they were trying to fill the PT program with students who actually needed to go PT ie, non-trad with families etc.

I would highly recommend Simple Justice.  It's an account of the long struggle to end legal segragation that culminated in Brown v Topeka.  Reading about Thurgood Marshall, Charles Houston et al, as well as the various Supreme Court justices was interesting and inspiring; a great tonic for the menial drudgery of LSAT prep and applications.  I'd also recommend Becoming Justice Blackmun which is a much quicker, breezier read.
