Transferred from T2 to Berkeley.
Was top 1% at T2.

Grades last semester were: 3x HH in 4 unit classes, 1x H in 2 unit class
Berkeley doesn't rank, so I don't know exactly how good this is, but I think it's pretty good. Definitely happy with it.

Damn son. That should easily be the very top of the class.

Wow, congrats! I think it's safe to say you're also top 1% at Berkeley right now. I transferred to Berkeley as well, got 2 HH's, 1 H, and 1 P. Oddly, the class I thought I was going to do the best in was the one in which I got a P. Between going through OCI and adjusting to a new school, I was pleasantly surprised with how my grades turned out.

Old School: T30. Rank/GPA: top 5%/3.9.
New School: NYU. GPA 3.585.

Anyone within any insights into the curve at NYU give me an idea what my rank is Approximately?

A At least 5% and less than or equal to 15% 4.0
A- At least 20% minus (% given A) and less than or equal to 40% minus (% given A) 3.7
B+ At least 50% minus (% given A or A-) and less than or equal to 75% minus (% given A or A-) 3.4
B % Discretionary. 3.0
B- % Discretionary. 2.7
C % Discretionary. C or D grades are capped at a total of 5% for first-year courses. 2.0
D % Discretionary. This grade indicates that the level of performance is below that which on average is required for the award of the degree. C or D grades are capped at a total of 5% for first-year courses. 1.0
E % Discretionary. No credit. This grade indicates unsatisfactory performance and no credit is given for the course. 0.0


Got my last grade and it was an A. So now my GPA is a 3.89. Any guesses? I'm talking very approximate would be fine.

Old School: TTT, top 5%
New School: t10, somewhere between top 1/3 and top 20%ish

It sucks not having published ranks but I couldn't be happier with how the new school grades came out. With OCI, moving, etc. I def felt like I wasn't as on point as I was 1L year but no complaints with the end result. Also my new school estimate is just that, an estimate and it likely on the conservative side.

Old School: ~10-15% at a 60-70s TT
New School: medianpwned at a T20

I missed about 3.5 weeks at the beginning of the semester (30+ screening interviews, 12 callbacks, from LA to NYC, etc...). I wasn't caught-up with reading assignments until Thanksgiving, and didn't really get started on studying for finals until about 4 or 5 days before my first exam. I guess medianpwnage in that instance isn't too bad, but I fully accept my TTTT performance this semester. Needless to say, I'll be gunning my face off this semester AND during 3L so I don't get no-offered at my SA this summer and/or have an outside shot at a clerkship later in my career. Magna cum laude or DIE. :lol:
