I'm at a top school and doing the write on and it is brutal.  There's no way I'm getting all of these citations correct, they're all too confusing.  Am I doomed?

Transferring / When will H and Y make their transfer decisions?

I have offers from other schools that I need to accept ASAP.  How long should I wait?

I'm in spring of my 1L year.  First semester grades were good.  But this semester I am absolutely swamped, and therefore am not paying as much attention to my classes.  For my criminal law class, I have noticed that I only put in about 30 minutes of outside-of-class work each week - 15 minutes to outline the classes, 15 minutes to skim the reading.  I would have never dreamed of doing that last semester; I spent hours preparing, outlining, and memorizing.  It's just that in this class, he pretty much spells out the rules/elements he wants us to know in the first 5 minutes then we discuss theory the rest of the class.  Do you think I am slacking off too much, and will regret this come exam time?  Or are some classes just easy let you can get away with this?

I just got my first semester grades back.  3 A's and one B+.  I'm happy with my grades, but know I could have gotten all A's.  My B+ was an off day and I made a huge mistake on the test (details not really necessary).  I'm confident I could get all A's next semster.  If I would, what would the chances of transferring to a top-10 school (like Michigan) be?  That would probably put me at either 2 or 3 in the class at a school ranked just outside the top-100.
