Ok, so I just got a paper back.  Score was 70 out of 100.

Mean grade must fall between a 2.5-2.85

Here's the class breakdown

4 - between 60-62
7 - between 63-64
7 - between 70-90

Median grade is a 64
Mean is 69.7

What letter grade would you say I have?

you probably have a 2.5 (I'd guess that's a c+). It really depends on how high of a grade the prof chose to give the people above you, though.

If the median is a B- or so, and OP scored in a little above the top half of the class, how do you figure he got a C+?

To OP, you probably got a B or B-.
