Probably bottom 45% or so.

I have seen other posts similar to mine on other boards.  I will not apoligize for asking the question.  I was only seeking a general NOT specific answer. I know you nor anyone else can say. 
"Tymeless, you will rank 2/144." My school actually does not rank or post percentage until next year.

And by the way I thought 3.0 equated to a B.  Not a B-.  Or am I that stupid?

Thank you though for letting me know that I should seek a response to my question elsewhere or at least on a more user friendly board. 



You should ask your admissions/records office as to where your GPA fell on the curve for the class before you. That should give you a general idea as to where you stand in this years class.

HTH


Thank you I will call today.

Chances are, s/he was/is at a T4, considering that extremely low curve. I still say s/he can get a decent job. Read "Guerilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of Your Dreams." The author explains how anyone can get a job, regardless of his/her school or grades. While this proposition may be somewhat of an exaggeration, I think it's true to some extent. If you figure out how to network, interview, and market yourself the right way, you can get a decent job even with low grades. Yea, you won't get a BIGLAW job, but you'll get something.


Actually, I'm in a tier 2 school, which is on the cusp of being tier 1. We're at like #56 or so.

Adding in this semester's GPA I have a CGPA of 2.7


If you're below the curve, drop out! Believe me, that decision will pay off in the long run!
