Hey so I am deciding between BC and Fordham. I plan on transferring after a year regardless to be closet to family elsewhere in the country at a "better" (higher ranked) institution.
Does it really matter which school I choose between the two?
Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm just a 0L, but the conventional wisdom around here is that you shouldn't go to a law school with the intent to transfer up.
My advice would be to go to a law school from which you would want to graduate.

Why do you think you'll be able to transfer?

Planning to transfer is a horrible idea. What makes you think you'll land in the top 10% of a class filled with people with similar credentials/intelligence?
The far easier and wiser path is to wait a year and retake.

A URM with a 3.67 and 170? Are those numbers real?
Why would you settle for BC or Fordham?
