What is the median at Berkeley?

Postby juice122 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:40 pm

I'm wondering what mix of Ps, Hs and HHs is needed for median, top 30%/20%/10% after 1L or 2L?

People are really quite about what they get here, so it's hard to get an idea.

No one knows, thats the beauty of it but my guess would be people tend to overestimate. I'd say:

If HHs count as 2, and Hs as 1 (and yes this makes no sense but people do it anyway)...

3 would be median after 1L.

6 would be somewhere around the top, whether 20% or 10% I can't say.

But 2-5 is probably the bulk of the class and in fine shape. Employers don't understand the system and probably can only really guess at the extremes or set an arbitrary hard cutoff (which you either make or don't and there is no point in worrying).
