Where I'm leaving and where I'm going can only increase my chances at biglaw. If it doesn't happen, fine. I think I'd ratehr clerk for a few years anyway.

CU resets your GPA, so do most schools because it would be unfair to compare you to other students who operate on a different curve. Trust me, the GPA reset was a plus for me. I did well but by no means knocked it out of the park, and I'm not holding my breath for OCI.
I think it matters some, but great preformance in your 1L year can definately overcome a lacklustre LSAT. The thing is you don't need to be in the top 10% to transfer, that's a myth. Lots of people successfully do it from the top half and can jump 50 spots or more up USNews. Schools are looking for driven candidates who distingushed themselves during 1L, not just the ones who wrote the best exams. If you distinguished yourself on the LSAT that could work in your favor too. If you did really poorly it could also say something about your dedication to law school and the practice of the law in general.
