Hi,
Sorry but currently we don't have a feature that can do what you suggested. If we find that most people need it, we'll implement it in the future.

So I've recently discovered the phenomenon known as facebook . . when I pick a law school do i have to create a new account and build a whole new friend group. . . or is it possible to transfer my friend base?

I know this is an old thread, but I did a search and found it. Anyway, the answer to your question is yes, you can transfer your friends. I emailed suggest@thefacebook.com and told them my old and new school email addresses. You have to redo all your interests and that stuff, but your friends, messages, and wall will be transferred. Took them a few days to get around to it. But it's seamless. Your friends will all of a sudden have you listed as from your new school. As a grad student, you can use the geography feature as well.

so did that get rid of your old account or was the result two accounts with the same friend list?

No, the old account was still there with all my interests, info, etc. but the friends, wall, and messages were missing.

The options from that point are to leave the old account as is with maybe something in your info saying, "check out my other account at x school". Or just deactivate it. I went with the latter and noticed that old wall edits I had made did not click through to my profile anymore. It just came up as an empty search. So that's kind of a downside. But with the former method, people could do a global search on you and you'd risk having people adding you as friends on your old account or both accounts.

It's just easier to deactivate the old one to avoid confusion I think.
