I understand median at T14 is better than median at #45, but there isn't an easy way to break this up into multiple polls.

What class rank would you need to grade-on to law review?

I need of top 1/3rd option - or maybe even breaking it down further. The longer I wait for grades, the lower it goes . . .

top 1/3rd would be nice, but I'm not counting on it.

yea, top third is my goal, which isnt an option on the poll. median wouldnt make me happy but it also wouldnt horribly upset me.

Top 50% keeps my scholarship, but I would not be satisfied with that ranking. Top 1/4 would leave me feeling pretty good as long as I am able to write on to LR.

Top 15% (really ~20%) - I want to keep my options open. Landing in the top 25-33% might force me to play the patent card to get my foot in the door for Big Law.

Indiana is 3.2 which is a little bit below our median

I heard they weren't even enforcing the scholarship cutoffs this year at IU. Next year, in fact, they have eliminated the requirement entirely.

I want to grade-on to a journal which seems to range from top 5-15% of the class depending on the school.

hmm i have no idea, that would be nice to know. a lot of people would be losing scholly's if they did, since it seems like most people have one.

Oregon's just requires good academic standing, which is a 2.0.

There is something fucked about a test where you can say 'I got a C or an A'

Top 10%

This poll needs 10% and 33% options.

I second the top 10% choice. I voted top 5%. Of course, this doesn't mean I think I'll get it, but I will be disappointed if not.

I don't care about class rank, but I'd like to be involved in law review and moot court.
