Class rank on resume?

Postby lawschool7777 » Sat Jul 31, 2010 2:03 am

for those transferring to schools with lottery systems...are you putting your class rank (not gpa) on your resume?...thoughts on doing this if your transcript does not state your class rank?

Yes, I'm putting my rank on there. I worked hard for that rank!

If the transcript doesn't state your rank then just be prepared to substantiate it if asked.

depends on where you transfer to. if you transfer to a school that doesn't have grades/rank they may tell you to take it off. I was told I could keep my actual gpa on there, but had to remove the only indicator of rank that our school gives us. I guess this is a little different since it is not my actual rank, just provides a range of where I fall. In conclusion, this post was not helpful.
