Can you only transfer to schools that have a PT program or do all schools accept transfers from PT programs?

1) Make a list of schools you would consider transferring to, based on geographic location, job prospects, cost, personal reasons and (if you must) prestttige.
2a) Check internet websites of said law schools to see if they accept PT transfers to their program, or, alternatively,
2b) Call said law schools and see if they accept PT transfers to their FT program.
3) ?????
4) Profit!

Yeah, started doing that a little bit. Some LS websites don't mention anything about accepting PT program transfers. I guess I will just have to go ahead and call. Thanks for the help.
