Not gonna lie, the options out of Touro are limited, but it is not hopeless. The LI firm I work at has plenty of people from Touro there, and they do pretty well.  As for transferring, I'd say you have a decent shot at a T2.

If you want to stay in NY, send out some apps to Hofstra, SJU, and NYL.  Either of those schools will give you an advantage over Touro as to getting jobs.  Also, consider asking Touro for a scholarship because of your good work.
