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.

Woot woot.  Tell GV I said hi.

Its months later, ya'll must have found out by now. So...

Does Vandy know about your new score?

Tulane?! You just spoiled my Tulane fantasy.  I almost willed a lower LSAT score to justify that choice a couple of years ago.

Yeah I could be completely wrong.  I work with federal judges, magistrates, AUSAs, local litigators, and federal defense attornies all day long.  Miami graduates 400+ students every year, of course we have a presence here. 

Cooley...have you heard the jingle?  Funny stuff.

Tampa is becoming an increasingly saturated market.  I wouldn't recommend Stetson to anyone.  Eventhough they have some amazing professors, a beautiful campus, and frequent legal seminars, the job prospects for most students outside the top quartile are grim.  The difference between their marketibility and Miami's is night and day.
