(1) Do not under any circumstances attempt to put an approximated rank on your transcript. It will make you look obnoxious, it is very likely to be wrong, nobody else will be doing it, firms already have all the information they need between other applicants and CSO cut-off info printed on transcripts, and, to repeat for effect, it will make you look obnoxious.

What sort of firms are the target firms for someone in my GPA range?
Odds I can fill up all 20 interview slots?
To cut through the usual bullshit, if you have a 3.48+ and are bidding on all NYC firms, you should feel pretty confident. The next nuclear reactor to blow up could be right next to where you work this summer, you could have a horrific personality / stench, the financial world could collapse even harder than it did last time this summer, etc. But realistically your grades + desired market are enough to carry you through.
As for filling up interview slots, that depends entirely on how many firms are coming, how many students each of those firms are interviewing, and a mixture of the intelligence and aggressiveness of your bidding strategy. I would not expect 20 interviews, but I would expect having an above average number, and 20 wouldn't be surprising with some hustle.
