As a 3L, I can tell you that as a 2L, you will have just as much work, plus extra stuff. You are just more efficient and less scared. Majority does not work during the school year.

LSAT DOES NOT MATTER IN THE TRANSFERRING PROCESS (unless you are transferring to Yale or Harvard, which specifically state that you must have been competitive to begin with. But even with Y and H there are LSAT exceptions). The only thing that matters in terms of numbers is your CLASS RANK after 1L grades come out(not your GPA). Plus, you must have interesting story to tell and/or have compelling reasons for trasnferring.)And, of course, recommedations.
It really depends on what school you are seeking to transfer from. In general, to tranfer to top 1st tier schools, you need to be: top 1-3 (and I do not mean percent) - 4th tier, top 1-5% in 3rd tier, top 10% in 2nd tier.
I was under the impression that the tranfer process takes place over the summer (with few exceptions - schools that base their decisions on the first semester grades during the spring semester). So I do not see how you could know that you have been admitted to Columbia as a tranfer in November.
