resume question

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Feb 03, 2015 9:55 pm

Currently applying for coa post d.ct clerkship. My school has a strict no ranking policy. I transferred from a much lower ranked school where every student was individually ranked. Should I indicate on my resume that my current school does not rank or just put my gpa? A met with a clerkship advisor after obtaining my first clerkship when my resume had a line saying "X school does not rank students on the basis of academic performance." She advised removing it. The only concern I have with that is that I do not want some judges that aren't familiar with the grading scheme to think I am somehow hiding the ball by having the rank from my old school and none at my new school. Thoughts?

I kept it on there for non-alum judges. If it's the school I'm thinking of, there are a number of alum judges (several of whom only hire from the school).
