I was going to say, not sure many schools will even let you qualify for honors.
Well at northwestern they do qualify for cum laude and magna cum laude, and our year they had a really shitty showing. Median jumps from 3.4 to 3.65 after 3L, which suggests a median of 3.775 for 2-3L. And still they many transfers failed to get to 3.65.
I mean, again this is true but i think it misses the broader point. So few people continue trying after OCI that it's basically a joke to measure the comparative competition. The test at a T14 is your 1L class rank, not your 3L A+ rancid seminar stacking. The statement "transfers do well at their new T14" isn't primarily flawed because it's statistically wrong, it's flawed because it's meaningless to "do well" when no one reads or goes to class except the SCOTUS clerk gunners.
But then it's statistically wrong on top of that.
Not that I blame transfers (or anyone else) for phoning it in 2L-3L.
