So, does anyone have an idea of what the Top 5%, 10%, or 15% cutoffs are?  Trying to figure out how poorly I can do on finals before I waste my time studying over here.  Just got an Order of the Coif letter in the mail today saying I have a "significant chance" of being eligible (top 10%), but it did not elaborate any further.

Thanks!

Really?  That is strange.  I was almost positive I was on the upside of top 10% yet no letter... disappointing.

Does anyone know what is the cutoff GPA for top 15% and top 35% for 1L at GW?  Thank you!

It varies by year.  I can tell you though that a 3.64 fell just out of the top 15% my 1L year (Im class of 2009). I think, although I dont remember for sure, that 3.66 was top 15%.  No clue what top 35% was.
