The ABA guide lists academic attrition rates for every law school in the country. Those rates are self reported though.

As for the class size, GULC, like some other top schools, substantially increases its class size after 1L with transfers. In fact, they take more transfers (about 100, I believe) than any other law school, which is why virtually every transfer applicant ends up applying there. So I don't think they cut students after 1L because their class size is "too big", if they do in fact cut students 1L.

Very improbable.

The curve is set up so only one person out of a section of 120 can fail a given class. I have never heard of someone being kicked out over grades.

3% do not return to GULC after their first year.  I read this in the US News ultimate guide to law schools.

!= failing students. 

(and it's only 1%, according to the data sheet.)

Yeah, I wasn't claiming that they failed out.  It is, however, in the section labeled "whose students are the most and least likely to drop out?"  And I was wrong--according to the book it's 2% for Georgetown and 3% for Cornell, which is the highest of the T14.
