Chances of tier 1 from a TTTT

Looking to tier 1 hopefully in CA or Chicago.
OR

Love the thread title incidentally..

I'm sure there are others on here that can give you a much more nuanced opinion, but I suspect you have a good shot at T1 (i.e. top 50) if you can maintain those numbers. Probably have a shot at T14 even I would think. If you can mention some specific schools you are most interested in within the regions you mentioned it might help people to speculate further on your chances. Also, since most schools only accept RD transfer apps (I think), a lot will depend on this semester's performance. You may want to find out which schools with accept EA transfer apps though within the top 50 and shoot some out.

Thanks for responding. What do yo mean RD? Schools I'd be interested in:
UCLA
USC
Pepperdine
Loyola LA

Northwestern
Depaul

But I'm not limited to only those listed. Would really like to apply where I have a chance since the app fees are alot.

I wonder if I should just move that thread to this forum and sticky it.

I think UCLA/USC is entirely dependent on whether OP can convince them he has a reason to transfer to CA. Ties there, or something along those lines. With UCLA taking 30-40 transfers per year and OP near the top of his class I suspect he has at least a chance.

Please do. I know I saw it a couple of times, and then when I really wanted to read through it, I had a hard time finding it.

Done. It deserves to be at the top of this forum.
