Last time I checked, the "bottom half" is not "flunking out". Flunking out means you fail all, or most, of your classes. The GPA was 2.781, which is pretty average when it comes to law school.
Get your head out of the clouds, kid. All enrolled law students are not magically in the top half. And in this day and age, when it comes to getting a job, if you aren't in the top 10%, it's more about who you know - even if you are in the top half.
And if you actually READ the intro question, you would see that the reason for transfer was not to go to a better ranked school - the transfer was completely lateral. It was about a death in the family, a-hole. Go read a book or something.
