Let me clarify, by 3.1-3.2-3.3 curve I mean that's what the median is (3.1 or 3.2 or 3.3, somewhere therein). In either of these 3 cases, 2.85 is going to be near the bottom.Or is that what seems way off to you?
i'm just curious how you arrived at your conclusion that a 2.85 will be in the bottom 10% when the curve is 3.2ish.
He seems correct to me. Think about it. In every single class a B+ is average. A 2.85 means a B/B- average in each and every class. That is below average to well below average in every single class. Most of the class isn't consistently beneath the curve.My school has about a 3.2 curve as well. After 1L year a 2.89 would put you in the bottom 10%. Below a 2.82 and you are in the bottom 5%.
