Pepperdine transfer v. another so.cal school

Pepperdine transfer v. another so.cal school
« on: July 24, 2006, 01:04:29 PM »
So I finally have been accepted to Pepperdine as a 2L.  What to do?  While the School I go to is lower ranked, and less known, I love it here.  I did very well academically and this upcoming year have been offered to be the TA for two classes, invited onto Law Review and the other Journal and most importantly, I know all of the students who are great friends!

So I wonder, is giving up all of this worth it for a transfer to the gorgeous school of Pepperdine?  I would have to start over - friends, no law review, have to work to figure out the profs etc. can't put TA on my resumes....

I think I know what i'm going to do - just wanted to throw the question out there!

Can I ask which school you transferred from? If you don't feel comfortable posting it here, would you mind PM'ing it to me? I think I'd have better advice for you if I knew exactly which other so cal law school you were coming from.
