Coif and highest GPA vary from year to year. You can search this thread for Coif discussions. No idea for transferring to HYS, I'd suspect around top 10%. Transfers out are relatively rare because HYS are about the only schools where it would make sense to transfer (not that people don't also randomly transfer to UChi for whatever weird reason). There is no "needed" grades for clerkship, anybody can obtain one. I'd say that top 1/4 to top 1/3 it becomes a possible shot, top 10-15%+ where that becomes more realistic (and of course, people with top 10% or better grades still strike out for clerkships).
