How to find out Class Rank in college (top 10%, etc.)

Postby usmgirl312 » Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:50 pm

I want to know my class rank. I just found out my registrar's office says they cannot calculate it until after I graduate... This is, of course, not helpful to me.
I want to know so I can add it to my law school applications. How did everyone else find out?
I asked the woman how I was able to get into honor societies on campus with restrictions like admission offered to students in the top 15% etc. if no one knew that information? She said she had no clue. So frustrated. Could use some help please.

Thank you.

Have you submitted your transcript to LSAC? You'll be able to see your percentile rank on the academic summary report.

I think that the number on the academic summary report is your rank relative to other law school applicants from your school, not all indivs in your class..

ETA: "GPA College Mean*: The average GPA for law school candidates who graduated at any time period from the institution and who registered for the Credential Assembly Service during the most recent three years you attended the school. There must be a minimum of 50 candidates in the LSAC database to produce this calculation"

Well that makes me feel better. I was surprised at how low percentile my GPA was according to that, but now it makes sense ...

Ah I stand corrected. Thanks for clarifying.
