I've been considering this as a method to get into a top tier.  This is waht I learned:
 
1. Need top 10% of ABA approved law school class.
2. It doesn't matter if you are at the most terrible ABA-approved school in the country, they will only look at your grades.
 
Sadly, I think you are in for a difficult time trying to transfer since you're at 41st percentile.  Definitely wishing you the best of luck, though!!! Take a shot anyway.  You never know...
 
Definitely present a cogent case for transfer.  Don't give some wishy-washy reasoning.

3 big reasons
I had a job at a very respectable IP firm local to the area that I wanted to transfer to.
My wife works at the nearby hospital at the law school.
I grew up in the area also.  
 
It will sometimes work very well in your favor if you are going to IP.  If the school offers a set of courses specifically for IP students, there may be opening spots in those classes so that basically allowing an extra student to come in will not require the university to provide any extra funding.  Of course, if the classes are slam full, it may work against you.
