I wanted to hold back on this for a bit since some of the other board members have gotten on my butt in the past for brining it up too much, but here it goes. You want to transfer to michigan to be with your sick mother but fear that you cant transfer. Try all the schools, but make sure to include Cooley. You can apply for free at http://www.cooley.edu They have starting semesters in not just september but also january and May. They accept people that other lawschools sometimes dont, and have four locations in Ann Arbor, Aurburn Hills, Lansing and Grand Rapids. I'd pick to apply to the one closest to your moms location. They also allow you to go as slow as a 5 year plan on weekends if you need to spend extra time with your mom to help with her care. Best of luck man, I hope it helps.
First of all: withdrawing from law school and seeking re-entrance later is a better option than going to Cooley.Second, he said he didn't want to step down to schools that are ***vastly*** superior to Cooley. Learn to read. He is afraid he won't make it in to Michigan Law School, which is a valid concern, not Michigan in general.
