Anyone know which schools are transfer friendly?
I think Florida State vacuums up more transfers than anywhere else.

It's title is The Art of the Law School Transfer, by Andrew Carrabis and Seth Haimovitch.Transferring law schools is trickier than it might at first seem, and comes with numerous personal considerations, among them a loss of GPA at the new school, often a last-in-line position for course selection and scholarships, and feelings of loneliness among a new crowd. For the right person it can be a great opportunity, but it's important to go into it with one's eyes open. Importantly, for those considering transferring for the job benefits, those are real. Interviewers will be curious, but not (usually) in the negative sense. They'll be impressed by your motivation and perseverance, and will want to know that you can handle yourself. As most transfer up, the vocational boost can be quite significant.Also, the deadlines for transfer applications are quite strict. (And, unlike most applications, the final decision on transfer applicants is often made by the dean of admissions personally.) Of special imporance are grades, both in what they are and in getting them in on time.Best of luck to you,Thane.
