Top Tier 2 20%, hopefully ending in top 15%

I've been considering transferring for better job prospects. I was wondering if anyone has successfully transferred to GW, Fordham, BU, UCLA or any other school in the 20's. Anyone have any advice?

Your school's rank matters here. GL

I don't know what you're looking for with this question. Obviously get the best grades you can to increase your chances of a successful transfer and ask for LORs early.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm looking for anybody who has had a similar experience to mine (top 20% from a school ranked in the high 50's), and has successfully transferred up. Whether it is worth a transfer to jump 20-30 spots in ranking? I was looking at Fordham, BU and UCLA specifically, so if anyone has had a similar experience to that, any information would be great.
