Yea, I think you would have a great chance at HYS. There was a poster on TLS from UCLA or USC (I can't remember now) who managed to pull off a 1L gpa of ~3.8 (top 5%) and he got into all of HYS. His starting numbers were similar to yours. I'm not sure about the money issue, but if you can transfer into HYS, money will become much less of an issue, especially considering the fact that you got a free year of law school.
I'm at a top 20 law school in a city that I def do not want to practice in... I just missed top 5% last semester (so I'm likely around top 6%) which puts me about #16 or so in the class...I'm considering transferring even though I actually like the school... What are my chances of transferring up? I'm from the East coast originally and had 3 years of great work experience before law school... My stats were 167, 3.56Also, I have a full scholarship at my current school - do any of the schools offer money to transfers? Given the economy, and that (assuming I do similarly well) I'll make law review here and I've made good friends and established decent relationships with a few professors - should I just not bother??
