Many law schools do not provide class rankings for any of their students. To ensure equitable treatment of students from those schools, OSCAR has been configured so that a search on any percentage ranking will return all applicants from those schools. They will be identified in a search result by the words "School does not rank" in the class rank column.

A few law schools rank only a portion of their students. Ranked students from those schools will be returned with a search on a percentage ranking; unranked students will not (although they will show in other searches, e.g., by law school). Unranked students from those schools will be identified in a search result by the words "Student is not ranked" in the class rank column.
