I would imagine these numbers are radically different for each school, depending on class size and how prestigous their law review is.  It very well could be 5% at Penn and 20% at Arkansas.

Check the school's handbook. Where I go, top 7.5% grade on to LR, but there's also a write on option.

Burgh is right. I have checked into it for every school to which I applied, and it differs for every single one.

10% of students make it to law review at Arkansas.  That comes out to be about 15 or so people.
