How much does being a URM help? I know this is too general of a question, but do you think a URM top 10% T3 w/ patent bar eligibility is a strong candidate?

To transfer where? HLS? No. Some T1? Yes.

I wish CounselorNebby was here to answer your question but IMO those are all somewhat out of reach. From a T3 you generally need top5% for lower T14. That doesn't mean not to apply. HTH

Last year a TTTT/Top 8% got into GULC, so I think you have a decent shot there. NU and Vandy are both within target, but I have no data on them with regard to your statstics. I would apply to all three. I would also recommend any other T20 schools such as GW that you may be interested in. GW takes in about 100 transfers, so that's always a good option too.
