Tier 4 to Tier 2?

Possible with a 3.5, probably in the top 10% at least.

I'd give you a 95% chance of getting in.

I went from T4 to Top 30 in the top 20% of my class.

Top 10% you better be shooting for T1.

As does George Washington.  However, is it worth moving 4000 miles to go to a Tier 1 rather than a Tier 2 that's close by and places well in this region?

SMU Dedman in Dallas has an evening/part-time program.

Georgetown would probably be the best(ranked). Then there's George Washington too. Who knows about exactly what the best quality is, but those two are top 20 schools. Then there's SMU and also George Mason.

Where are you looking to move from?

Check the Yahoo group "transferapps" to see how others are doing in the transfer dept.  You get a wide variety of schools, from T4 to top 10 all trying to transfer around.  People put down UGPA, LSAT score, type of UGrad, and the name or type of law school they're at (i.e. tier 1, tier 4, etc.)  People also put down gpa or ranking from the current law school as well.  All this information sounds similar to LSN, but a sampling is better than nothing to get an idea of chances for transferring to X school.
