I'm currently in a long distance relationship where my significant other lives in Pittsburgh, and I'm in NJ. My top 2 schools are Duquesne and West Virginia, and with my scores (3.3 at Penn State, 151 LSAC) I stand a pretty decent chance at getting into those schools. Duquesne is right in the city, and WVU is only 45 min away, but the other schools I applied to are between 3 and 6 hrs away. While she would move out with me wherever I was accepted, we both want to live permanently in Pittsburgh.
Assuming that I didn't get into either of those schools, and that she cannot get a transfer from her job right away, how easy is it to transfer after a year of school? I would probably try to transfer to Pitt. I'm planning on busting my ass and getting good grades, but would my lsat figure into that equation? Also, do most schools accept all of your first year credits? Your advice is much appreciated. Thanks
