Does anyone have any hard data to back this up? I've seen the stuff on the yahoo group, but that can hardly be considered reliable data to support this claim.
As a potential I pray that this is true, but I have never seen more than anecdotal evidence to support it.
Depends on the school we are talking about. I transferred into a T6, and every single transfer I know is set with a V25 or higher firm. A few of my friends from my old school also transferred to another T6 and their stories seemed to entirely match up with mine. The transfer classes at the top few schools tend to do very well because they have the 2 things the employers care about: They will graduate with a degree from the new, higher-ranked school, and they have have sterling 1L performance (or else they wouldn't have been able to transfer into the school in the first place). Since every single transfer has both of these things, they are among the most successful subsets of students.
Again, I can only speak to the transfer experience at the NYC T6 schools, so perhaps peoples' experiences differed at other transfer schools.
