How did you do (grade wise) at your new school?

I want to start a thread that I think will be helpful for future transfers. Basically, something like this:

Old School:
Old Rank:
New School:
New Rank:

Feel free to put actual schools or a rank range if you prefer more anonymity.

Good point. Edited the OP.

Old School: TTT
Old Rank: 2%
New School: T20
New Rank: top 35%

Definitely tougher competition but I took only curved classes and know I can raise this.

I don't intend to reply to this in the requested format in the open. While I could post ranges, folks here know exactly where I transferred from and to. I'll leave it at my class rank at my new school was not drastically different than that at my old school.

Old School: FIU
Old School class rank: 15%
New School: FSU
New School class rank: 25%

There was definitely more competition at FSU. I put more effort into my studies at FSU because I actually liked being there. I didn't like being at FIU so I quit reading as a 1L.
