Where to get statistics on how many transfers each school

Is there a database or a website that keeps these statistics?

Here's some info from this thread. It's about 2 years old, but I imagine the numbers are pretty consistent.

Number of People Transferring into the T14

1. Yale ~10-12
2. Harvard ~30
3. Stanford ~12 (DarlayBoo, MarkTwain, and jwbayou5 say it is more like 16-20, but it will likely be cut down back to 12)
4. Columbia ~45-60
5. NYU ~45-50 (according to rayiner, it was cut down to 31 this past year)
6. Berkeley ~30-40 (though my transfer class this year looks like there were 50+ people at orientation, even after I subtracted the few visiting students)
6. Chicago ~15-25
8. UPenn ~25
9. Michigan ~30
10. Duke ~12-20
10. Northwestern ~20 according to their website (Law School Numbers says 40)
10. UVA ~35
13. Cornell ~5-10 according to their website (Law School Numbers says 18), though they only receive about 75 applications every year
14. GULC ~100

Other Popular Schools to Transfer To:

15. Texas ~15
15. UCLA ~30-40
17. Vandy ~25
18. USC ~5-10
19. WUSTL ~50

Go to this page: https://officialguide.lsac.org/Release/ ... ation.aspx

Click on the school for which you want the info, then click on "ABA Law School Data". The # of people who transfered into that school (and out of that school) will be on the bottom-right of the first page. I'm not sure if this is last year's data or the previous year's.

The data is from 2 years ago. Confirmed by checking own school's transfer in numbers. Great resource nonetheless, forgot all about it, thanks.
