It's rounded out to exactly 10% (well, accounting for fractions of a person) of the graduating class.

The only question regarding K&E scholar as a 3L is if there has been small enough turnover in the top 5% over the course of 1L and 2L to add additional students to reach 10% of the graduating class. Because of small enough turnover in the class of 2013 over the course of 1L and 2L, I know 3Ls who received the K&E scholar designation this year with barely a 180.5.

Also, as a c/o 2013 transfer, I can say that my 1L grades were favorably converted to a 187.5.
