How big of a role does Class Rank play in the College Admission process?

<p>Our school doesn't distribute class rank, because of how competitive it is. Anyway, I just wanted to know how this will affect my admission into colleges? Is class rank really that big of a factor?</p>

<p>I don't think it matters that much to colleges. Rank just allows them to see where you stand among your peers.</p>

<p>Class rank is an important factor but if your school's that good then adcom's probably know about it so they will know your school's system. Don't worry about what's out of your hands.</p>

<p>Thank you very much! I was so worried that this would affect me.</p>

<p>The most competitive schools (like yours) don't rank, and adcoms know this. They'll turn to your transcript and recs to guage where you stand among your peers instead.</p>

<p>I came from a school that didn't rank - as far as I know it didn't affect anyone in anyway. Don't worry about it :D</p>
