I am unhappy that I took the lower-ranked school with the in-state tuition (essentially a 17k/year scholarship.)

I am remedying that situation by transferring to the highest school I can get in to ;D

Out of curiosity, what was the rankings differential between your top school, and the school you chose?  And where are you projecting you can transfer to?

Currently at a mid-30's school. Top school I was accepted at was WUSTL, but I should have retaken the LSAT and aimed for the T14 (or at least UCLA/Texas/Vandy) instead of settling for my in-state school.

I've been accepted GULC EA already, though I can't make up my mind on whether I would go there if it is the only T14 offer I get. Unless my grades take a real dive this semester, I should get in the top 10 somewhere.
