why are you "dying to leave the school..."? From Touro Law's web site --> A student who has successfully completed at least one semester or the equivalent period of study at another law school may apply to transfer to the Law Center with advanced standing. You would need to be in Cooley's FT 15 unit program.

Yes the weather in Lansing stinks but I take it this (Spring) is your first semester or you wouldnt be asking this...

I would take summer term and try to transfer for the Fall.  If your grades are good enough you may be able to persuade your schools to wait for your grades even though they will take a while to get in.

Good Luck!
