CLS - estimating class rank and cutoffs

Postby bowser » Sun Jun 16, 2013 8:54 pm

So I haven't seen much in the way of trying to guess how class rank has been affected by the new 1L grading curve. I just got all my grades back, and I'm wondering where I'm gonna stand.

As far as I know, the old 1L median was somewhere b/t 3.25-3.3, and Stone cutoff (3.41) was right about top 30%.

My guesses: new median is ~3.3, new Stone cutoff is about top 35%. My guess is maybe the top end of the curve is affected less than those around median, because those people never got B-'s anyways.

When doing my class rank calculations, I've just been using 3.33 as median and Stone as top 40%. Probably a conservative estimate.

Edit: I can't believe you already have all your grades back. I have one grade, and it's not even the elective.
