Any point in trying to transfer?

I am somewhere in the top 10-20% (won't know for a week or two) of a T30 midwestern law school.  I am considering trying to transfer to UChicago to be closer to family.  Is this realistic and/or worth it?

Do it. 


Worst case scenario you're out of the $80 app fee.  The way I see it, if you're in law school you're probably in massive debt anyway, so what's another $80 in the scheme of things?

Yes!  Go for it.  Agree with above poster - nothing lost by applying.

And, of course, you can try Northwestern, too, if the motivation is being closer to family and wanting a bump in school prestige/prospects.
