NYU, Chicago, and CLS are even easier to tell because they have cum, magna, and summa type honors (Harlan, and James Kent for CLS. Honors and high honors etc. for Chicago). What you will see is that many of the CLS NYU and Chicago grads at the top DC firms have say James Kent and magna cum on their bios ie the equivalent of coif at UVA (at least for the magna and up). What you will also see is that just as there are UVA grad with no coif or raven society or law review who have been hired there are NYU grads with not even cum laude being hired. In other words their stats/grades are comparable. If you want to check out the grade comparisons even further Chicago and the rest of the schools actually break down the overall requirement for the various honors on their websites.
Don't let JUSVA fool you--- that shit isn't rocket science, it is actually pretty easy to figure out a student's overall academic qualifiers in the sense that you can know that they didn't graduate with "top" grades (ie top 10 percent or something). You can't figure that shit out to the decimal (which is what I guess JSUVA want) but you can definitely figure out a basic idea of where they stand. By the way the firms are even better at this, don't think they fall for that no grades garbage that schools are trying.
I did look at the links. Truth be told, I prefer seeing this information as data, as opposed to opening individual bios to get a sense (easy to be deceived).
Given that all three schools rate at a 4.6 on USNWR's lawyer/judges score, I'd imagine the difference in grade cutoffs isn't sizeable.
