If a firm cares, they'll ask you for a UG transcript (every 1L employer I encountered wanted UG grades).
Do they recommend you omit just your UGPA, or LS GPA too?
I imagine if you go to CLS it doesn't much matter. I go to a LS where you're not really in consideration for a firm job of any kind if you're not in the top-25% or so, so I feel like putting the GPA/rank on your resume is important for getting yourself a second look, especially for the OCI employers that just make you submit a resume/CL to bid and not a transcript.
we (technically) don't have LS GPAs or class ranks. no gpas or class ranks, though, ever, for anything. top 10% and top third get titles anyway.
edit: some transfers put their ranks and GPAs on their resumes, against the advice of OCS. it looked a bit... gauche.
