J.D. Program Grading SystemStudent grades are calculated on both a letter and a 4.3 scale. There are no official class standings. At the end of the 2011-2012 academic year, a student who attained a true weighted average of 3.607 or better made Dean's List for that year. While students may not round up to compute Dean's List or awards, students may round up to the nearest hundredth of a point when reporting GPAs on their resumes (i.e., "3.278" can be presented as "3.28"). The faculty has adopted a numerical equivalent for letter grades.
Fordham Law School does not rank or provide official class standings; however, below are the approximate or estimated class standings for 2011-12.
Fordham Law has established scholar designations associated with certain approximate class standings. Please review the description of these Scholar Designations to learn more about these achievements.
