3.67 is at minimum 25% and at maximum 37%
4.00 is at minimum 15% and at maximum 22%
Anyone know what median is for 1Ls? Trying to figure out how to bid as a transfer and figure out if its even possible to do it with any rhyme or reason. I'm just going to consider myself somewhere between top third and median for bidding purposes, I think.
You think between 15% and 22% of the class has a 4.0? Uh, I don't think so. For any given curved class, between 15% and 22% get As, but the same people don't rank the same in every class, so that brings GPAs toward the median.

And I'd expect 1L grades to be a bit lower.
Ah yeah, that's right. I was looking at this:
Anyway, based on your link it looks like 3.65 is top 41% for 2010? No breakdowns for 10%, 25%? Still inflated, though (3.67 at my old school is good for 12.5%).

3.9 - top 5% (probably a bit better)
3.8 - top 10% (probably just outside)
3.7 - top 20%
3.6 - top 30%
3.5 - top 40% (probably a bit better)
3.35 - median
Ty. I dunno if this is consistent with the link from Bumi tho so Im still a bit confused.
