To transfer or not to transfer?

Just found out made law review at my non-east coast T20. Want NYC big-law.

Transfer to NYU/Columbia (very likely) without law review or stick it out at my school w/law review?

I think everyone will tell you to transfer, especially to C, unless maybe you have a full scholly. Even then, you should go to c.

Class ranking percentile? Are you paying sticker or do you have a scholarship? Do the NYC law firms you want come to your school's OCI?
