top 5% for UVA/NU. Might be able to get into NU with top 10% but unlikely. top 5% first semester for GULC EA. GULC EA also prefers GPA's over 3.7 regardless of class rank. top 5 numerical for UChicago
I think that for the most part, the summer associate position for a 1L is just that. See most firms realize that 1Ls don't really know that much just yet. So it doesn't matter too much how great the relationship was b/c they will still choose someone that has a great cumulative GPA and has tailored his classes to the firm needs over someone who seemed like a good kid. Sure it doesn't hurt that you worked there, but I don't think that it's such the "in" that everyone makes it out to be.
Now, in the second year...that's a different story.
