thanks for your help! I'm currently on a full ride scholarship and should be able to keep it up for the next two years (only need a 2.5 GPA!). So that will definitely be somethign to consider in transferring as I am basically able to graduate debt free. Did you find that you are happy in transferring even though you gave up a sizable scholarship at your 1L school? I guess I'm willing to do it if I get into a top school but what are your thoughts about getting into a top 40-50 school? Worth it?
