I'm also a USC grad. No rank listed on the transcript...

However, the CAS report includes rank, so I'm assuming LSAC's considering our numbers against the overall reported stats of a respected class. No proof, though...

the percentile rank is the rank among all the USC students who registered for LSDAS and had transcripts submitted during the years you attended USC. Not the overall school rank.

+1. The percentile rank listed is probably a bit lower than your overall UG rank, since those with low GPAs are less likely to apply to law school.

I' d just call USC and ask someone in the registrar...On your transcript there is the band that has what rank your GPA puts you based on grade distribution, right?

Check to see if any of the law school applications actually ask for it. The only application I've seen that asks for rank (out of the maybe 12 apps I've looked over) is Stanford.

I filled it out on multiple apps, although I don't remember which ones. I think most said class rank if known. You can ask your department chair for the rank (I did just to make sure).
