I had it happen, not as a transfer but as a entering 1L. I was rejected by my first choice, the accepted at a Tier 4 and was all set to go when my first e-mailed me strongly encouraging me to appeal the decision. Granted there was some behind the scenes machinations on my behalf by a friend with connections but I didn't have to do anything special just simply to write and ask for them to reconsider, then I was offered admission to my first choice, so I'm off to be a 1L in a couple of days. It also probably worked in my favor that I'm URM and they had worked through a good portion of their waitlist. So I'd say give it a shot, it can't hurt to ask, what's the worst they can do, say No again?
