In one way, if you're hanging around median it helps you out, but if you manage to kick butt and make it into the top 10%, my concern is that you're not going to get the same opportunities you would at a school that ranks its students. Seems like it lowers your risks, but puts everyone (even those who may not deserve it) at more equal footing. Thoughts?
If you get good enough grades to be top 10%, the employers will be able to tell just from looking at your transcript and seeing all the A's. Maybe a current Bruin can answer, but I doubt it hurts students at all. Most top schools don't rank right?
Bruin alum here. Not ranking has no effect on hiring by firms in California. Firms are pretty clear what GPAs approximate requisite rank cutoffs. There might be some confusion if you were applying outside of Cali markets but as other said if you were in top 10% range employers will know. And if you are medium, a UCLA degree is not going to help you much against local schools regardless of rank.
