And even if my grades were that good, I would likely already be set for my goals (STL or midwest biglaw), so transferring up wouldn't even make much sense I don't think. I have no aspirations of NYC or any of that. Plus I love my school and I've made some good friends here, so I think the odds of me transferring are ~5%.
If you're happy where you are, and if you're set for your goals there, there is no reason whatsoever to transfer in my book.
I think I'm set with regard to my goals - I'm probably top 5%ish or higher, and I have great work experience - but I'm just not happy here. South Bend sucks. Few of my classmates have the same interests or background I do, and even fewer professors have interests that align with mine. I didn't think it'd be a big deal, but it is. I think I'd fit in better at somewhere like WUSTL (lateral transfer) or NU (a move up).
