I am planning to transfer no matter what but how does St. Thomas fall in comparison to FIU, Nova, UM and the Miami market? 

Don't count on a transfer. Everyone expects to be at the top of their class, only 10% actually are.

Actually, technically, only one person (around .05%) actually is.

It all depends on how one defines "top of the class", of course, but without additional clarification, it would generally be the top individual.

Doesn't anyone around here think before they post?  ::) ;)

No.
I have courted the fire for a very long time, and many sparks have flown in the past, but [this post] speaks, finally, the language of the flame itself.

You tell that to a hiring partner who considers top of your class top 10-15%.

I spoke to a couple of lawyers about St. Thomas and they've told me to stay away from that school. Your ability to transfer to another law program will be contingent on your first year grades and you will have no idea how what your performance in law school will be like. In the worst case scenario, you won't be able to transfer out of the law school you're in, so make sure you've made a well-informed decision.
