Updated tables would be incredibly helpful for potential transfers. I got rejected from a school that was low enough in the rankings that I figured I would be a shoe-in (because my grades were very good). I was pretty confused, but after looking at your book, I saw that they only took 1 transfer a year. It was worth purchasing the book for that sole reason (the peace of mind).
Out of curiosity, since this is a subject you've studied in depth, do schools do this to fill the seats that were vacated because of attrition?Or do different schools just have different philosophies.For instance, school X may lose 10% of their 1L class and they go out and get an equal number of transfers so their 2L class will be the same size as their 1L.Or, maybe school Y loses 10% of their 1L class, but recruits MORE than that number? Does that ever happen? The school does this to have a larger 2L class?Or the other way around, schools just don't care who they lose out of 1L, and they just go with whoever comes back?Also, it seems to me that most transfers into t14 or first tier schools probably come from the 3rd and 4urth tier. Is that true? The reason I suspect this is that if you're doing really well at your school and it's a 2nd tier school, you will probably have awesome job opportunities and not feel the need to transfer.
