Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a female sophomore physics major at San Francisco State, and I have applied as a transfer to four schools: UCLA, UCSD, UCB and CalPoly. I currently have a 3.97 GPA and plan to keep it that way. I think I have little chance of getting into UCB, but I have a slight hope for the others. I am also hoping to get accepted for a 10 week research opportunity this summer.

My question is: Will I have a better chance of getting into a top-tier (or ivy league) graduate school if I transfer or if I stay at San Francisco State? I'm basically asking whether graduate committees look at school and GPA or just GPA or just school...?

Correction: I don't mean 'Ivy league', I mean MIT, or CalTech or Berkeley.
