Law school transfer students

Jerry Organ updates his data for 2017.  Taking large numbers of transfer students--whose credentials are invisible to the US News ranking gods--can allow a school to take a smaller 1L class (whose credentials are reported to the ranking gods) while still generating tuition revenue.  Of course, not all schools take transfers for that reason, but the larger the numbers, the more likely that is part of the consideration.
