The fact that you're coming from T20 might be a bit of a bump since the schools have to disclose where their transfers in are coming from.


Respectfully disagree. GPA's are skewed greatly depending on curve/inflation. Still, top 10-15% at a T20 is def competitive for CCN. Keep those grades up and best of luck! Remember you can always leverage an acceptance at another school to boost the scholly at your current school.

Of course they are, but this is the case with undergraduate GPAs too when you are a 0L.

Transfer schools don't have to report class rank--they only have to report GPA medians/mid-ranges. And likewise, many law schools don't disclose rank/percentile, so it's not available as a metric for every transfer applicant anyway.

I'm sure they consider rank/percentile in a holistic review, but I don't see why they would place most of the weight on a factor they don't have to report.
