    I think it's one of those things where it's more important if you're near the bottom, or seen as average.

    How can you be in the "Top X %" for volunteering? Why the need to slap rankings on everything?

    My pre-med committee's evaluation forms had this on it as well and I felt like it was strange. Initially I wasn't worried about it but then I found out these forms are sent to the med schools with the letters as part of the committee "packet." :eek: Anyway, the highest ranking on our form was Top 10-15%. Top 5% is a good thing. :thumbup:
