Can you convert this GPA to a ranking?
« on: May 23, 2006, 10:06:35 AM »
Hi,

I finished with a 3.6 GPA for my first year. Our grade normalization for 1L is around a 2.6 (I know, pretty rough). Any idea how this plays out in the ranking? Top 20%? 10%? 5%?

Thanks.

If you are smart enough to get a 3.6, you should be smart enough to know that it's almost certainly in the top 5%.

Probably like top ONE PERCENT. Our school has a 2.7 curve -- I spoke to a 2L who had a 3.36 in 1L and he was in the top 5%.
