You speak from the experience of a transfer student who made law review at Loyola. The majority of transfer students will not make law review. Moreover, how do you know you would not have gotten a similar (or maybe better) job if you stayed at Southwestern.
Most of us here cannot speak from personal experience; however, the legal market is more predictable than most other markets. A Southwestern degree, everything else being equal, is worth less than a Loyola degree. The problem is, not everything is equal when one is considering a transfer.
Feel free to make more disparaging comments about my writing on an online forum. Or better yet, compare my writing here to law school exams where most students don't spend much time on grammar or spelling. At the end of the day, your success and my lack of writing ability are not what matters for the OP. Rather, he needs to balance the risk versus reward and make the decision for himself.
