where are you guys getting the mean/median 1L GPA for your school? i found some info from NALP re: top X% and associated GPAs. however, that is for graduates and not 1L. thus, is this a good indicator of class rank or not really?

If your school does not rank in any way, you're gonna have a hell of a time. My school doesn't. But look at it this way:

At my school half the people in each class or a few more get a B+, so the median student will have 4 Bs (3.0) and 4 B+s (3.3). So the median is a 3.15 or so. You can go from there somewhat.
