0L here, I would say no. Guess it depends what u want to do after law school but if you want to stay in Houston, dont transfer.

<--- 1L @ T20 from TX.

IMO, NO WAY. If I were you, I would not give up that rank to pay sticker at Baylor/SMU/UHLC.

UT/T14 or dont transfer

Ive applied to transfer to UT, but they wont accept me without seeing this semester's grades, which may not be posted until after classes start in the spring...baylor just offered to go ahead and accept me based on the grades I already have (as long as i dont drop drastically this semester).

I want to get that big law job after I graduate, and not really concerned what city I am in (as long as it is not san antonio)

Better shot of that being top 2% at TTT than starting 2L at median at Baylor.

Is waiting on the grades and taking a semester off an option? I mean, your grades are fantastic and you'd seem to be a near shoe-in for a UT transfer. Wasting those grades on Baylor would be a horrible decision.
