If you went into it with good faith you should be okay to transfer since you got a late acceptance. It's not like you could've said no to LR and not done OCI b/c of the off chance of transferring.

I wouldn't worry about it. Depending on how many students normally transfer from your school, your LR might build in a few extra slots for probable transfers.

I apologetically pulled out of LR earlier today because of a transfer, and the editor was perfectly nice about it and wished me luck.

As for OCI, I imagine someone else will be happy to take your interviews!

Yeah, don't worry about it. You're fine.

No reason to be sorry about LR. Most transfers generally have LR in their original school.
