Can you transfer from a "provisionally" accredited school?
« on: February 22, 2007, 12:37:36 AM »
Just wondering if I could potentially transfer from Drexel after my 1L since they should get provisional accreditation by the end of my 1L.

My thoughts are that a provisionally approved school is the same as any other T4 school.  Get in the top 20% and you'll have a good chance at transfering to a T3 and maybe a T2...

I had an intern at work (female african american) who transfered from Southern New england school of Law to American after her first year.  Not too shabby.

I have a question about transferring:  Is it possible to transfer after the first year and pick up where you left off?  Do you have to repeat the first year work at the school to which you are transferring?

Also, if you transfer after the first year (which ends in May or June) how would it be possible to do this without sitting out a year? 

Thanks in advance.
I don't want to do it if it hurts or if it makes you get all sticky.
