Dude, your current GPA would not put you in the top quartile of the class at Minn which is somewhere above a 3.5 for both the 2l and 3L classes. You may have a chance to transfer to a georgetown/northwestern level school, but who knows. There are probably 60 or so people at Minn with better GPA's than you. If you get law review at Minn. you might have a chance at a federal clerkship in Minnesota, otherwise it is highly unlikely that you would achieve that goal barring extensive networking connections with the federal judiciary. The federal judiciary could have its pick of clerks from the law reviews of the t-14, something that is largely out of the question for you. Its hard enough to get a Big law job outside of the top quartile at Minn, infinitely more difficult to get a federal clerkship. If you successfully transfer to a lower t-14, AND write onto law review (if that is permitted), AND rock a very high GPA your 2L year, AND get lucky, you will get a chance at some federal clerkship interviews.
