I'm happy to take questions about 1L life, transferring, jobs or anything else...where are you in? What was your class rank? How was the transfer process? Is it like applying to ls all over again (minus the LSAT)? How does this affect your summer job (if at all)? Any advise for those who may at some point transfer?
2) Not exactly sure because they only tell us whether we're 1-15% or 16-35%; based on numbers alone, I'm close to if not at the very top but I can't provide any degree of precision.
3) Transferring is more paperwork. I'm not applying to a lot of schools, but generally speaking each school has their own way. Some want everything through LSAC, others won't accept that way, etc...be prepared with everything so when you get your grades back you can work quickly and decisively.
4) Hang in there. As this post history hopefully conveys, I was very dejected and not expecting much at all. Don't let those feelings get you down...I almost did, and I would not have been nearly as successful if I didn't keep it all in perspective.
