3.48 First semester GPA
Softs (Student gov elected rep, volunteer for minority bar association in my area, volunteer judge for high school mock trial scrimmages)
Long story short, I applied to many Tier 1 schools (non-binding early decision).
I was wondering what are my chances for GW, WashU, and Vanderbilt?
I have looked at the 509's many times but I don't quite understand if my school rank will significantly hurt my chances?
Any advice is appreciated

It does sound like you're a URM, though, so I'm not sure what effect that might have on transfer admissions.

Charleston, Elon, and CathU to UNC
Drexel to Penn
John Marshall, Indiana (Indianapolis) to Notre Dame
Suffolk, Western NE, RWU to BU/BC
Chapman, Southwestern to UCLA/USC
Louisville, CathU to Vandy
Hofstra to Cornell
St. Mary's, STCL (Houston), UNT (Dallas) to Texas
Also note that Georgetown takes a bunch of TTT(T) transfers, but their GPA range is a bit above where you are. GW seems far more accessible for TTT(T)s, and you're above their GPA range. I recommend (1) getting your grades up as much as you can; (2) applying to schools in the same city/region as your school and (if different) where you have strong geo ties; and (3) applying to GW.
