First and Second Year Evening Program Students

Part-time Evening Program students, during their first and second years of law school, are not ranked. They may, however, gain a general understanding of their class standing by comparing their GPA to the class rank percentiles, which are listed above. Resumes for Evening Program students, during their first and second years, will indicate that their class rank is an “estimated class rank”.
