My child’s school does not report class ranks. He has the highest GPA, but the only ranking-related recognition is the Cum Laude. He is also a National AP Scholar (all 5s except one 4).
On the Common AP, there is not enough room to list both of these. Which one should he skip?
It seems logical to skip the the National AP Scholar, as the AP scores are reported somewhere else on the app. But the Cum Laude is for the top 10% of the class, which is really an understatement, in his case (the best in a class of 200), in terms of conveying class ranking information.
What should he do?
