Any educated guesses what they are? Toop 10%? Top 20%?

Earlier on TLS, people have said you need 8 or 9 H's after the first year for top 10% - that number feels a little low to me though. If anyone has more concrete numbers, please share!

My guess is that 8-9Hs is right around the top 10% cutoff for a rising 2L, but it also can vary per year. Stanford's a small enough school that the sense that I get is that there can be years that the Hs and book prizes are spread more thin than others. Reputedly, the class that just graduated had more concentrated Hs/book prizes than the current rising 3L class (which may not have changed the "cutoff" for top 10%, but would have made those in the top 10% look more clearly "top"). There were people in the just-graduated class who had all Hs and close to double digit book prizes. I do not think there is anyone in the rising 3L class on track for that.
