Though keeping your GPA off may cause your reader to assume it's worse than it actually is.

Besides, if your school doesn't give out class ranks, generally you're not allowed to estimate and put one on there. (If you put one on, it implies it's an official rank given by the school, which is a problem if your school doesn't release them.)
