Sorry to be a downer, but I think that percentile would only allow you to lateral transfer. Maybe Brooklyn/Villanova/Cardozo?

I'd apply to all non-T14 schools in the city you want to live in. If you can come up with compelling reasons to transfer, your 25% rank won't absolutely bar you from transferring. Which market, specifically are you interested in?

DC and Boston, though so does everyone else. Wish there was a school in the 50s in Boston

That's what I was afraid of. Maybe two of the most difficult markets to break into. Ties?

Apply to GW, they tend to be transfer friendly, much more so than BU or BC.

Yeah, I was thinking GW and AU. I wonder why BU & BC aren't transfer friendly?
