e-mailed the dean of admissions back and forth for two days and it ended with no increase in my scholarship amount. i will be withdrawing as soon as i figure out how

Withdraw, unless you're part time and already have a job you wouldn't mind continuing if LS doesn't work out. You can do better. Plus, my scholarship (same deal) included some ridiculous stipulations (top 10%, IIRC). Check those out before you make any decisions.

You went to MIT for undergrad? No offense... but how on earth did you only manage 153 on the LSAT. Please retake...

Does anyone here know how easy it is to transfer from JMLS to say Loyola Chi, Depaul, or Kent?

You probably shouldn't go to a lower ranked school with the idea that you are going to transfer after the first year. I can't say for sure but I'd imagine your 1L grades would have to be stellar resulting in a class placement of at least the top 20% if not the top 10%.
