I mean, would it really be worth it at that point, assuming you are on scholly, to transfer to UCLA or USC? I would say probably, but being a top dog at a school in the local area it seems you want to work wouldn't be such a bad thing.
Yes, I would love to stay at Southwestern, and will be perfectly happy if I do. The problem is that I am interested in securities law (my background is in finance). If I don't get into the SEC when I graduate (going there this summer), I'd probably need to join a large firm. There are smaller firms that do securities law, but not that many.
However, being on a law journal is important to me, so that weighs in favor of staying at Southwestern. Getting published is one of my goals. I'm going to start work on an article this summer on the Goldman Sachs scandal.
