Thank You for your information about transferring to another law school.

Does the Letter of Good Standing address your academic grade ?

Can a school use your transfer request against you ?

Your transcripts address your academic grades.
Generally schools do not use transfer requests against you.

Note that a lot of Deans would bitch and moan about having to write more than a handful of recommendations. Apparently, it is very difficult to copy and paste. Be persistent and they would yield.

The dean at my 1L school was very supportive of my decision to transfer. She knew I wanted to practice in Texas and all my family lived there, and knew what an honor it was to attend UT Law. I even dropped by her office to say hello when I went back to visit last fall. In no way did my transfer request count against me!

As for the letter itself, it's a pretty standard form letter that does not consider your academic progress unless you're in distress (which you won't be if you're trying to transfer).
