When schools are tied, US News lists them alphabetically. UCLA and Georgetown are tied, yet UCLA is listed first. In other words, this is not legit.

I was accepted as a transfer to Georgetown from a school that doesn't rank. Just make sure the school you are trying to transfer to knows the curve at your current school and they will be able to figure out how you compare to your classmates.

Top 1/3 will not cut it no matter what school your friend is transferring from. To transfer into G'town you need to be at least top 15%. To transfer from UF, I would say top 5% to even have a chance.
I totally agree. I also think because of the US News article, word of mouth, and the EA option that G'town, in particular, has seen a tremendous increase in transfer applications. Therefore, in spite of having a good number of spots available for transfers, I think G'town is extremely hard to get into as a transfer student. In fact, if you like at the yahoo transfer group, you will notice that a number of students were accepted as transfers to NYU, Columbia, and Penn, but were rejected by G'town.
I am not sure yet, maybe GW, but probably not American. I am really just hoping/planning on Georgetown and trying not to think about second options at this point. Do you know of any other students at your school looking to transfer? I don't know if it's just my imagination or what, but it seems like there are thousands of people trying to transfer to Georgetown. I do think you have a good chance with your LS performance, international experience, and compelling reasons to transfer. If not G-town, then GW and American for sure.
I have a 3.8 at the bottom of T1, but my undergrad gpa was extremely poor, but hopefully it won't hurt me too bad. Good luck to you. It sounds like tons of people are trying to transfer to Georgetown, so the competition will be tough.
Kilroy, I am doing the same. Do you mind sharing your numbers? By the way does anyone happen to know whether G-town is concerned with undergrad performance and LSAT, or is it pretty much all about LS performance and quality of LS when it comes to transfer admissions?
