Anyone out there with information on typical gpa/class rank for accepted transfers at MD?  The transferapps database doesn't have much for them.

I did it.

Went from T4 in totally different region, ranked top 1% (at time of application, it dropped to top 5%), 3.61 GPA (inlcuded summer grades but rank only included spring grades), moot court, several CALI awards, Legal Writing Teaching Assistant, extrememly compelling reason to move (which happened after I thought I withdrew from Maryland)
I was also a spring transfer, as I started law school in the spring (yes, I am all kinds of jacked up)
I don't know what the 'average' stats are as I think they took pity on my story (not that I didn't have strong stats, but GULC rejected me with the same stats)
