It's difficult. But yes. It depends on the school. Most schools address the question on their websites in the transfer application section.

I transferred to a top 20 law school and got on law review. DO IT! DO IT DO IT! don't be discouraged and godsakes, try to blue book but it is my experience that nobody knows the blue book unless they are managing editor their 3L year. Hell, I still don't know the blue book very well after a year of slave labor.

Of course it is possible. With the amount of stress and work you've been used to at the cutthroat  T4 you were at you'll find it very easy to compete with the candy-assed T1s!

Well I couldn't have done too badly, seeing as I'm competing against a bunch of candy-asses!

In all honesty, however, my guess would be that it's equally difficult to succeed at a T4 and a T1.  While there is much more competition at a T4, the intelligence level of your fellow students is much higher at a T1.

Either way, a high class rank is something to be proud of.
