None of the T14 rank the entire class. Some only rank the top 10% or top 1/3

Vanderbilt only publishes the GPA cut-off for Dean's List, which constitutes where the top 20% of the class fell. Even then, they just say what the GPA cut-off is and don't actually publish names or anything.

Iowa does not rank outside of the top ten students, but has percentile cutoffs.

ND allows students to report Dean's list and how many student made it and the school releases the median.  Consequently, falling much below the median hurts, but that's somewhat true everywhere.
