First of all, I'm not denying the point you're making. But below median summons the concept of bottom 25%. Something like that. .06 of a GPA is not bottom 25%. With that small of a differentiation, don't you think saying at
median is more definitive.
I'm not laughing at you for your class rank. I'm laughing at you because you think you have a shot at transferring up (and not just up, but WAY up) with mediocre grades. FWIW, I'd probably say the same thing to someone with top quarter or even third grades. It'd be like me asking how I should tailor my Wachtell letter. It's just not a question you ask on TLS if you don't want to get some lulz.
I don't know a ton about the PNW legal market, but I agree with Kappus. If you get your grades up a bit, I think you may have a shot at a decent job in the PNW with above median grades (and maybe even now). You have the diversity factor going in your favor, above median at Texas isn't bad at all, and you sound like you have ties. True "biglaw" may be out of the picture since the market is small, but you'll at least have a shot at a job there that doesn't suck.
