Is there a place where we can see the 25th percentile, median, 75th percentile grade trends for prior years of EIP?

Unsure if this is helpful or not but I stole a glance at a Ropes interviewer's info sheet and it said that they are targeting top 50% at H.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but if we got a callback, can we assume we made it past the firm's grade/qualifications standards? I feel a little insecure about my grades but did get callbacks.

I hope that's not a new policy, screener to callback ratio used to be quite good. Maybe I should stop refreshing my email... :/

I got Ropes with 1 DS/3H/6P for what it's worth? Not sure what percentage that is...

lol that's well above median. Isn't median typically 3H?

I wish there would be an authoritative answer to this question! Some firms gave callbacks without seeing transcripts and I'm not sure how to read that

At my firm the answer is yes. We wouldn't invite anybody to a callback if we were worried about their grades. We occasionally make exceptions to the grade cutoff but that is done before inviting them for a callback. i believe the only time I even see a candidates transcript is when I get it at OCI interviews. During callbacks I only get their resume.
