class rank and gpa

<p>do colleges even care about your gpa if the school you go to ranks? i have a rather low unweighted gpa (88) but my class rank is top 5%. any thoughts?</p>

<p>bump......</p>

<p>Class rank tells the GPA story. In your case, lack of grade inflation. No college will miss this. A 4.0, top 20%, which is all to common today, is just that--top 20%.</p>

<p>Yeah, they still look at your gpa. Some colleges unweight everyone's gpa and then compares them that way.</p>

<p>ok thanks guys</p>
