Cornell only releases top 10% cutoffs, but in the past few years, the 2 semester cutoff for top 10% has ranged from a 3.68-3.73. This year it is a 3.81.
Still, Cornell sent out OCI information stating that firms were "very grade selective" in the past is they hired "those with a 3.65 or above". Unfortunately, that number means nothing because we have no idea how it relates to our grades this year. I am sure some students used these numbers and overreached with their bids.
actually, i think the post was quite helpful and probably on point for what happened this year at Cornell. the only thing that wasn't helpful was the new curve, ironically.
