lol, hope not. my percentile's even lower, and it's not at HYP.
keep in mind you've probably already got a solidly self-selective group there because that's only among students who are applying to law school
edit: oh yeah and, uh, they go to HYP
i thought HYP had heavy grade inflation?? maybe not to get that stellar 4.0, but to get relatively high GPAs
it is known for heavy grade inflation. but the extent to which the grades are inflated actually isn't relevant here. the OP's actual GPA isn't the matter at hand; it's his GPA relative to his classmates. whether A's are fairly easy to get or very difficult to get at his school, it's still the same pool of highly talented people he is up against.
my HYP --> grade deflation, not inflation. according to LSAC, the mean is a 3.43.
me/OP --> a she, not a he (see avatar for confirmation)[/quote]
3.43 is pretty high....
but anyway, the grade inflation is offset by the difficulty (of course there are exceptions though)
