You're right. I make too complex :). I'm king of a stressed person. I believe that's why I make it too complex.

Thanks for your help again :)

You should work on your stressing out/anxiety issues.  

If you are stressing out and obsessing severely at this point in the process and don't get that issue handled properly, you will probably be a basket case for the men in white coats to pick up that will put you in a straight jacket and give you a nice solitary room with no dangerous objects (metal, cords, strings, belts, etc.) you can hurt yourself with during your first semester of law school, especially during the first round of 1L final exams time period.      

Consult with a qualified psychiatrist/psychologist and work that stuff out with professional medical/psychiatric assistance.

I've seen bad things of this sort happen more times and to more people than I can count.  

One notable example:

There was a girl in my 1L class section that I sat next to due to the seating chart in contracts class during first semester of 1L.  

She had a PhD from Stanford and was really smart, but cracked big time due to some sort of anxiety/mental issues.

During class, about halfway into the semester, she started blurting out video game noises like 'bleep, blurp, zzzzing, bop, zop, etc.' randomly while the professor was lecturing.  Other students and the professor kept looking back at me and her when they heard the noises.  I just held up my hand and pointed at her each time everyone looked back while also trying to take notes and focus on the lecture.  

When it got close to finals time she started bringing her dog to classes and hiding it under the desk.  Not a small dog, it was a lassie type dog.  In the last few weeks of contracts class before finals, that dog was in my foot space and chewed up my shoes and shoe laces.  The girl was not present for 1L first semester finals and was not present in our class section or seen again during 1L second semester or beyond.  

Here is a great movie example of what can happen if you cannot handle the pressure of higher academics:

Real Genius. studying too much, goes crazy

First things first, prep for the LSAT, get good at it and achieve a high score, then you will have many options.  In the meantime, figure out whether you want to do full time or part time and where you would like to live and go to school for at least three years.  Once you have a good LSAT score, apply to your preferred schools and see what happens. The process will go much more smoothly with less uncertainty to simply get into a good full time or part time program in a place you would be happy to live and cut out all this transferring stuff.  

Pick an area and schools and let the school choose you based on the merits of your application. Then enroll, move there, plant some roots, make friends with classmates and people in the area and plan on staying for several years.  

It seems that you are making a complex and difficult process even more complex and difficult based on the various FT/PT transfer etc. options you are exploring.

Get in somewhere good, enroll, show up, study, do well on exams to achieve good grades, graduate, then prep for the bar exam in whatever state you want to practice in.


;agree;

I agree with Jeffort 100%. Transferring in general is a very tough proposition, and it shouldn't be something that you count on. It just doesn't make sense. You need to just focus on finding programs that you would willing to attend for the duration of your legal education (whether FT or PT), and you should decide which of the two--FT or PT--is most beneficial to you before you even start looking at schools. Transferring is not something very many students are able to successfully do every year, and you shouldn't bank on being one of them--the odds are stacked against you.

Regarding your question--I don't think I've ever heard of schools accepting post-1L transfers, but I'm sure in some cases it might be doable. It would probably depend on the circumstances surrounding your request. Again, contacting the schools you're interested in would be the best way to determine if that's a possibility.

Jeffert has made good post. Now you will have get information bout the part time and full time. I think that part time though is one year longer but it would be as effective as full time specially if you are doing it from the reputed college. The choice is yours.
