Shot at CLS and NYU I would think. I doubt HYS. You'd probably get into Penn too. I'm not sure I'd leave, though. See viewtopic.php?f=27&t=249031

This. If you're at a school like Brooklyn/Cardozo I think you have an excellent chance at big law. (Just as an aside, TLS users should note how often these threads (top 5% at T1 or T2) the OP has a full scholarship at the school they're attending.)

Yeah, I wouldn't give up a full ride at Brooklyn/Cardozo to transfer to NYU/CLS when you're top 5%. If you strike out, it's probably not gonna be because you didn't transfer. I realized that my view originally in the other thread was probably wrong, due to a wrong assessment of the placement power of the NYC T2s.

Plus based on TT curves I'd guess a 3.97 would put OP even higher than 5%, depending on what info the school releases.
