Help estimating class rank

Postby Codebrew12 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 2:21 am

Question for you super smart math types. I just finished 1st semester of 1L and got a 3.47 against a 2.67 median curve and in each class no more than 15% A,A-,B+. My school for some reason is not doing rank for a few weeks. Does anyone have experience with a 2.67 median curve that could give me an idea where I will likely be?

The problem is that it only shows rankings for graduating students. After 1st year my school relaxes the curve to a 3.0. Thus I would assume it won't match up because of the .3 difference in median.
