This should be in the NALP directory, right?

I checked, but it only gives the percentile and the "required GPA," which I suppose is the bare minimum for each cutoff.

But those should be the numbers you're interested in, right? The GPA will differ from year to year, but if you look a multiple years you should a good idea of what GPA is needed for that % for your graduating class. (Also, the NALP link you provided is for 2007 (check the end of the url). You can just change the year in the url to see multiple years.)

I'm on my cell phone so I can't look it up, but it's on the Fordham website

Top 1% - Summa Cum Laude
Top 12% - Magna Cum Laude
Top 33.3% - Cum Laude

Did they change it for this year? NALP posted last year's cum laude at 25%.

Well, those two conflict. I don't know which is right

just out of curiosity, is there any incentive for schools to hide their honors cutoffs? It seems like half of the schools out there don't release them. Makes no sense to me.

Its very interesting that I just looked up 6 years of NALP records and every year says 25% for cum laude, but the Fordham website says 33.3%... Its actually somewhat important for me because hitting 25% would take something like a 4.0 semester which is probably not happening...

Any educated guesses on what the GPA cutoffs will be for 2013?

Nalp has it at ~3.5 but also says that's for 25% whereas the school confirmed the 33.3% cutoff...
