No rank yet; traditionally I think I'd be just outside of top10%, but this year the curve got a bit more generous so it may not be comparatively as strong. The way our grading system is it really doesn't make sense to even hypo-rank though until after the year because of specificity issues. I think there aren't a ton of transfers leaving my school and that transferring out students tend to do fairly well in terms of being accepted, so I'm hoping this could help.
Georgetown EA- (I submitted EA application; have family legacy and have expressed strong interest).
Penn- (hope to be in a position to apply; have spent time on campus for a workshop and should be able to express strong particular interest).
Berkeley- (like Cali.. the people at Cal Law seem more friendly than at a lot of top schools.. and it's a great school; no specific ties though).
Cornell- (have family legacy, but not for law specifically).
Columbia- (I think it would only be worth applying if I get straight-As this semester. I have already ruled out Y/H/S since I think I would have needed all As both semesters to have any real shot).
If you're just outside the top 10%:
GULC EA/RD: 50% -- maybe more due to legacy

I really have no idea on this one, but I'd imagine you'd have a reasonable shot at a couple T1s, and be accepted to any T2s or TTTs
