Contacting schools you want to transfer to?

Would it be any benefit to contact schools to which you want to transfer? I intend to apply to a couple of schools where I was waitlisted (until I picked my cheaper state school). These transfer apps are not yet open

This isn't meant to sound snarky, it's a genuine question - what would you say in such a contact that can't be said in your application?

I don't think it could hurt insofar as asking questions about the transfer application process

I mean what questions do you have that aren't answered on the website?

There is no need to contact them. They only care about your 1L class rank and school rank.
