GW is very transfer friendly. From my experiences, law schools are pretty random with transfer application acceptances, so you may want to suck it up and pay for as many applications as possible. In the scheme of things, the extra 50-75 dollars means very little. Especially if you are looking at paying 60K a year for GW (with living expenses). That said, make sure the schools will even consider you though before applying. Schools may limit transfers to students who are still technically 1Ls. Just something to make sure of first. Anyway, good luck to you!
