You can, however, apply to be a visiting student on another campus. You should consult your school's policies regarding credit for visiting another campus (i.e. how many credits you can take elsewhere and which schools are acceptable locations for visiting). I'd also strongly recommend identifying what it is you don't like about your current school, because I have a hard time believing that you're not going to find largely similar circumstances on another campus.

It's probably too late at this point, but you could have tried to go abroad for 3L. Might still have time to apply for a full semester externship if your school has that sort of thing, and then go to DC or NYC or wherever and get school credit for working.

What exactly do you hate about your new school? If it's your classmates, all of the T14 have enough students in each class year that it should be entirely feasible to "find your group," if you will. If you find you hate lectures, try taking more seminars - or vice versa if you find you hate seminars.

As a former transfer myself, I believe most schools mentioned a 2-year residency requirement (as in, if you transfer there, you must be there for at least 2 years). Not sure if that is a school-specific or ABA-mandated rule. But pretty sure it would preclude you from transferring a second time.

Curious what you hate so much about your new school. Regardless, I think your best bet is to muscle through the remainder of school and try to make it as enjoyable as possible. Do you have a job lined up? Its just 1 year left, so at this point, you can sort of start to look ahead to your post-school life (while making sure you put in enough effort to do decently during 3L year).
