Going to a T3 you should really focus, from day one, on networking and getting involved in the legal community outside your school (join the local bar associations, an Inn of court, go to CLE sect.) because that is your best way of finding work. Assuming your going to go to school in a city where you would like to stay afterwards giving all that up to go to a T2 may not be worth it, because your going to have to start networking again there too. Even at T2 schools, top 50 schools, most students donít find a job through the school (like OCI) Contacts being so important to finding good jobs (and assuming you have done that by the end of 1L) I would not transfer unless it was to a school that by its self guarantees me a job (through rep). Who you know beat where you go, if you do it right, so do it right from the beginning.
