1L Fall grade distribution and quartile information

  • 6 January 2021

Although 1L students do not receive a class rank in the fall semester, we do offer the following quartile information so that first year students may gauge how they are performing.

These quartile cutoffs are the only information which is available for first year students for the fall term, and are not official class standings (official class rankings are determined at the end of the spring semester once a full year of law studies is completed).   Information regarding class rankings may be found in Section IV.M of the Student Handbook.

 

These are the 1L quartiles following the fall semester (for informational purposes only):

25% - 3.666
33% - 3.574
50% - 3.334
75% - 2.970

 

The 1L grade distributions for the fall semester are now posted under the Grades link of the Academic Services page of TLS Intranet at https://intranet.law.tulane.edu/Depts-Offices/Academic-Services-Home/Grades-Transcripts  The list of the highest grade in each course is indicated on the grade distribution chart.

 

Please contact Academic Services if you have questions about this information.
