Has anyone visited another school for their 3rd year??
« on: March 21, 2008, 12:03:41 PM »
I'm curious to hear about experiences of students Visiting another law school for their 3rd and final year of law school?? How was the transition? Was it worth it?? For visiting you still get your home school degree but can take courses at another school. It is like studying abroad with another school. Grades don't count toward home school gpa, but you need a C in the class to get credit.....

Gracias

Yeah, this is called transferring.  You have to attend your degree granting institution for at least two years to receive a degree from that school.
