I have done very well in my first semester my gpa is between 3.7 and 4.0 and I was wondering what would be my chances of transferring to yale or harvard or somewhere in the t14 like nyu? Is it worth it to go there besides a possibility of a more prestigious clerkship? Is law review possible, and this is a question for other transfers: how have they been able to fit in?
I'm sorry, but there's a HUGE difference between a 4.0 and a 3.7. What is your current rank, percentage wise, in your class? I'm assuming you're a 1L, since your post implies this, so you might not yet be ranked yet.
A few relevant questions:
Where do you want to work after law school? This can be a specific answer such as "biglaw" or whatever, or a more general answer, such as a specific state.
What is the total debt you're looking at attending your current school vs other top schools?
