Don't know what 75th is, but median is reported as 3.3 and top 25 is above 3.5. These are estimates.
is median really that high? Looking at the percentage breakdowns, it should be a little lower.
I'm definitely basing my numbers off of Wikipedia and the class rank estimator. I haven't found an "official" source so I'm open to correction on this. I'd be cool with it being a little lower.
My thinking is that since 57% are B+ or better and 43% are B or worse, although the person who gets the middle raw score will be getting a B+, when you aggregate that over several classes, it should be somewhere between the two, leaning more toward the B+ since there are slightly more people in that range. So if you took 10 classes, you'd likely get 6 B+s and 4 Bs, which indicates to me that at the highest, median for 1L would be somewhere around 3.22 (this is a really rough estimate - just the combination of 2 Bs and 4 B+s - and I may be leaning on some terribly off-base assumption).
