I went to Cooley last year and was able to transfer to a T2. I'm not going to make light of how difficult it may be to transfer, but it is not as tough as they lead you to believe, nor is the 15 credit schedule. Most of the kids in my section dropped down to 12 credits and a lot dropped to 9. There is no golden rule to doing well, you just need to put your time in and forget what anyone else says. Some people will study 50 hours a week and barely pass, some will study 15 hours a week and transfer out, this is probably due to the wide range of admissions that are made. Some people simply aren't cut out for law school. There is no set curve. However, you will find that all the grades end up falling into a curve (which in my section I estimated to be set around a 2.4). You'll find that probably only about 20% of the section will have a 3.0 or higher. Keep in mind that class rank is what really matters. If you can get into the top third or so, you'll be able to transfer somewhere. Good luck.
