My school is fucking retarded in that respect and doesn't have that information.

How else are you going to construct a bid list, even if you know your %ile.

TLS to the rescue! I seriously can't imagine the wealth of information available here compared to just going based on CSO at most schools. It would be like trying to land a passenger aircraft for the first time with no training, hands, eyes, or lungs.

Ask 2Ls pretty much. The good thing is no one else has that info either I guess. My grades were good not great first semester, and still managed to snag a solid number of interviews (more than most) in a market where I had no ties. No offer from 1 CB though lawl

Figured out the %tile though. I've heard anecdotally that firms just figure it out, because they have enough info to estimate.

Edit: also TLS, ya

TLS can be helpful but it's entirely anecdotal. One person who interviews bad could tell him to not bid at X firm because they want higher than Y GPA when it's just not true.

It would be nice to have access to both TLS and some more empirical data.

I asked for this stuff for 1L LOLCI and the best I could get from the CSO was "maybe one of us can tell you how hard the cutoffs are."

Rest of my grades are due today. 2 to go. If 1 of them is an A, I likely slide into the top 10%, and my transfer hopes become at least somewhat realistic. If both are As, I'll probably leave work early and get drunk drunk drunk.

I am a giant bundle of nerves.

C'monnnnnn, UT ... my section hasn't gotten a single grade back. Torts final (half MC) was over a month ago, and the LRW profs have had our briefs for about a zillion years.

Or, you're not actually enrolled in law school and have been dead the whole time, only seeing grades you want to see.

3 A's, an A- and a B. Given I had a 4.0 after first semester, not the best, but given I walked out of property and nearly vomited, pretty good. 3.84 cumulative. Top 5% here I come.
