I second 2L Man. There were people in the top 15% barely that got into NYU, and people in the top 5% that got into harvard and yale. however, like he said, unless you really really miss home, there is no point in transferring if you have grades that would allow you to transfer (unless you want an appellate clerkship or a chance to teach). GW places great in Cali. Plus, the rankings are going up significantly this year, and there are rumors it will replace G-town in the T14. Granted, I am the one that started those rumors, but in case USNews basis anything off of LSD, it is helpful to keep them circulating.
