Does anyone have insights on what class rank it takes to transfer from a lower T14 to HLS and Columbia?

If you're doing well at a lower t14, why transfer?

Columbia routinely takes top 15-25% kids from lower T14s. H sometimes takes top 10% students from lower t14s, but I agree that top 10% seems to be the standard.

Do you guys know if Columbia puts a cap on the number of transfer students from the lower T14s? The 509 reports show that it usually takes just 1 from each of them every year.

Agreed. If you are doing well enough at a t14 to transfer to HYS, you can get just about any job you'd get from HYS (except, maybe, some jobs that only the tippy top HYS students can get, which would be tough to get as a transfer anyways).
