The only data points / anecdotes we have have been posted a bunch of times and always the answers are that somewhere slightly above 3.5 would get you cum laude and somewhere slightly below 4 would get you magna cum laude. The most common numbers I see are 3.5-3.6 for CL and 3.9-4 for MCL, so I just assume 3.55 and 3.95 but that for any given year you might see +-.05 on that.

It's somewhat complicated because HLS appears to calculate GPA by doing (1L GPA + 2L GPA + 3L GPA)/3, and we don't know if the graduates who have posted their GPA and honors are calculating it completely correctly.
