Above a 3.6; however, i was tied with maybe 3 or 4 other students for the number one ranking after my first semester. Also, this is not a flame.

How much above a 3.6? Call me crazy, but I'm a bit skeptical that a GPA of around 3.6 would tie you for the "number one ranking," even at Cooley.

Just outside the top 5%. I declined to participate in OCI. I figured I would wait until I got some grades at my current institution then try to apply for jobs.

I was tied for number 1 after my first semester when I had a 4.0.

He was tied for #1 after the first semester. He wasn't #1 when he transferred after his first year.

OK, this is obviously a flame. And a pretty terrible attempt at it too.

Who "declines" to participate in OCI to wait for grades at the new school (i.e. after all large and midsize law firms are done hiring)? Also, a poster with 8 posts who knows what a "flame" is, and says that they are not a flame up front...

This not a flame. I'm not sure exactly how to prove it.

8 Posts but joined May 2010. And a quick look at his posts reveals postings regarding TTTT -> T25 transfers way back when. Not a flame (or an extremely elaborate one).

And OP: Why do I do a better job defending you than you are? Seriously, stuff like this isnt that hard to prove

The best advice I can give you is to work hard. Law schools are filled with tons of smart lazy kids that can be easily outworked.
