hey rhyme,

The question is should I address it considering the fact that the class topper has a GPA of 3.2

Class topper? I dont understand. The highest person in your class had a 3.2?

In general, id say it depends on a few things

(1) Can you point to an increasing trend?
(2) Wahts the average for the school? Are you substantially below average?

why not put your range, such as top 3% of class, or top 5%

Yea, I mean, if a 3.0 is top 5%, theyll notice on the application. If it worries you, just mention it - "Although my overall GPA is a 3.0, I'd like to highlight that this is nonetheless in the top 5% of my class."

Thanks a lot Rhyme and Wilget.

Though we don't have a ranking system but unofficially I am 4th in the class.

That's a good idea to mention that I was in the top 3-5% in the class

well mention top 3, or top 5. I dont know if they like top 3-5%
just an idea.. maybe rhyme has some tip on that. I would mention 4th in the class.. that sounds more classy. like 4th rank out of 100

Certainly won't mention both. But thanks for the heads up.

Well we didnot have 100 students but it sure was one hell of competetion between the students.
