I was actually just wondering this. 20 or so people grade on every year, so you'd have to be top 10% of the class. Searching "cutoff" in this thread shows you some of the old speculation. The basic conclusion is that there's no way to know, but from what I can tell the best guess people have is around 180 average
They expanded Law Review, so it's more than 20 grade-on, and is around top ~12-13% of the class. Varies based on year, but 180 is generally safe.
You shouldn't worry about this stuff. No reason not to be a try-hard 1L year. After that though...
