This is encouraging and scary at the same time. Scary because it is really hard to know how to separate fact from fiction in this profession. I would expect that at least law firms would be *somewhat* straightforward about the required credentials to work for them--if only to save their own time and money...
I get the impression that is what they are trying to do. If they say top 10%, then they get applications from the top 25%. If they said top 33%, and we mean it, they would still get applications from median students who are hoping to be the outlier who interviews above their GPA.
Also, many T14 schools don't actually rank. People in the 5-15% range don't really know that they are certainly in the top 10%. The curve shifts up and down somewhat from class to class (some professors give non-mandatory low grades) and the correlation between grades may vary by section (some profs use non-standard testing methods).
