Transferring / Class rank: Ratio --> %
« on: June 05, 2011, 04:21:41 PM »
What's the standard on rounding percentages? For example, if a rank is 10/190, which equals around 5.26%, do you report on a resume as top 5% or top 6%?

I know that if it were 5.5% it would round up to 6%, but unclear if it's ever ok to round down. I have seen both done/approved as well as disapproved. Unfortunately, for transferring, there seems to be a difference between top 5 and 6%.

Transferring / mid-50s to T14?
« on: February 01, 2011, 05:52:56 PM »
After my first semester at a mid-50s law school I am in the top 7% (13/196), and am strongly considering an upward transfer. From what I've read so far, it seems I have a real good shot at Fordham, but I'm not sure if that's a big enough jump to make it worth it.

But of course I would much prefer a T14 school, particularly Columbia or NYU. Any insight as to my chances or advice would be very helpful.
