Related, what's the cut-off for Stone?
Stone is a 3.41 at the end of the year. If you're not a diversity candidate or applying for an international position, you would likely need a GPA that put you closer to the Kent (3.8 ) range than the Stone range to even have a shot. I could be wrong, but I don't think many people had 1L SA positions at all. Your best bet would be to talk to someone who had one and ask how they got the position.
Almost everyone ends up either with a GSF position, an HRIP position or doing a summer judicial internship. I think the caveat to this is if you're from certain secondary markets.
Is Kent always 3.8 and above or does it change? I don't think I'll be able to wait for a 1L position anyway because I have an offer from a fed agency pending, though it's unpaid.
