The 2012 US Olympic Team trials are listed as 1:46.50 for Men automatic, and 1:48.30 for provisional. The qualifiers for women are 2:01.30 automatic and 2:05.90 for provisional.

This question is moot because the mile is not an Olympic event. The closest in distance is the 1500m.
Rebecca Adlington's time of 8:14.10 in the finals of the women's 800 meter freestyle was an Olympic record and a world record.
i run a 2:04 for the 800 and I'm a junior. the state qualifying time for the 800 in my state (Illinois) is 1:57. i'd say 2:10 is a good time to get as a senior.

It depends on the field of the participants. For the U.S., you need an "A" qualifying time of 1:56.60 to go to the trials. The top three runners will qualify for the Olympics. The time required to be in the top three will be detrmined at the trials in Oregon.
