The only real datapoints we have are the released percentiles:
I believe these are cumulative, meaning approximately 30% is above 179. But I'm not entirely sure on that. We do know for sure that, at least last year, top 5% cut off somewhere between 180.8 and 181.
But seriously don't give too many shits about fall quarter grades. It's easy to freak out or be disappointed or whatever, and if you did well it's easy to take it as a sign you can relax. Just work on improving either way and try not to let it get to your head in either direction. Fall quarter is like... 10% of your total 1L credits, iirc? It's not a lot, and there's a lot of time to change your habits if what you did didn't work out.
Also one grade is elements which bears no resemblance whatsoever to the rest of 1L.
