Transfer from Taft

Postby dropout » Sat Dec 29, 2018 9:49 pm

Background - I decided to look elsewhere after being accepted to nusl for a mls. nusl claimed none of my transcripts ever arrived for financial aid clearance after accepting my application.
I would like to transfer from taft to an aba approved law school. So far i have found that suffolk and udc could be options. Are there others I should consider? I cant get into any aba schools as a 1L because ive failed out of school to often. If I cant transfer I will attempt a long distance job search when I pass the bar. But, due to col in cali i would like to avoid this.

Ok, so your post is mostly unintelligible, but from what I can glean...

If you're going for the MLS, what are your career goals? And does it matter if the school is ABA accredited when your degree carries no weight to begin with?

I am not doing the mls, im attempting a jd. An aba school would be more respected and allow me to sit for any states bar

Ok, so maybe don't mention irrelevant information next time. Are you currently enrolled in a JD program?

Albany and Touro. I will retake if i get in for more $$ aiming for 156. First must determine if my softs are impossible to overcome. Not aiming for biglaw, both schools have decent grad jd required employment stats. Not looking to transfer out since i want no debt
edit- safeties are wne and mslaw andover.
