Your chances will be very good if that's the case. But I don't know how you are "guessing" that you will "at least be in the top 10 to 15% of [your] class." Unless you are in the top 5-10% of your class right now, then I don't understand how you could be so sure how you'll end up. Even if you are in the top 5-10% now, there's no guarantee you'll stay there. Not to discourage you, but you only have (at most) half of your first year grades at this point...

i transferred from cal west to usd and was ranked in top 15%.  There were probably 15 of us who got in from cal western, only 1 from thomas jefferson so not only does rank matter but what 4th tier school.

top 5% will probably get you into UCLA or USC
