I'm a 2L at a T4 school in California. After the first year I finished in the top 10% of my class. From what I've read online and on this forum it seems that unless you have a compelling story it's usually difficult to transfer upwards to a T3 or T2 school. Just wondering if anyone has had any success by reapplying and starting at the new school as a 1L? Thank You
I think the reason the OP heard it was difficult was because even top grades from a lower-ranked school won't help if your LSAT isn't up to snuff or they don't need more people. Law schools accept very few transfers, usually only to replace people they lost through attrition or transfers out.
Maybe. My LSAT wasn't very good and I still transferred up multiple tiers. I started at a tier 4 as well. I don't think LSAT grades are very important for transferring. Easily the most important are grades and class rank.
