Release of Academic Ranking and Q.P.A.

The School of Law does not release the academic ranking of its students. Students are not permitted to estimate class rank on their resumes. Students may list their numeric Q.P.A. and/or their letter grade average (e.g. B+) on their resume. Students may not list more than one grade (e.g., B/B-), but may list only the one letter grade that reflects their average (e.g., B-). Students may consult the grade distribution charts, prepared by the Registrar's Office, to determine whether they fall into an employer's class rank cutoff or preference (e.g., top 25%).
