Transfering as a 1L

In theory could someone transfer before completion of their full 1L or at least as a "visiting student"? If so what schools allow that?

All the schools I have looked at, explicitly say "1 full year".  It might be ABA rules.  You might have to apply as a first year.  Best thing I can think of is look for school that take part time transfers.  Sorry I can't be of more help.  Good luck man.

Do you know which schools take the part time transfers that you mentioned?

I have seen schools that take part time transfers.  I'm am a full time though, so I didn't commit them to memory.  Brainstorming, I think NC central, maybe Univ. of DC,and NYC.  Basically, any school that has big part time programs itself. All of the above are public interest schools.  Sorry, I can't be more help.  My situation is different so I didn't do any research on that particular aspect.  Check school geared to low income students: they usually have larg part time programs.   GL
