Unclear Rec Letter Form, Please Help!

Recommended Posts


My letter writer is having a hard time filling in the form to U of Oregon. In the section that asks to rate the applicant, each dropdown menu gives you this percentages in order (Upper 1-2%, 5%, 10%, 25%, 50%, Lower 50%, No basis) Which is the highest and which is the lowest? Please help immediately because she is already bored with filling in all these forms.

Upper 1-2%, 5%, 10%, 25%, 50%, Lower 50%, No basis


Upper 1-2% -- in the top 1-2% (of the class, the prof's former students, etc); ... Lower 50% -- less than average. 


You could contact the school to ask, but I think this is pretty clear. (No one will care or even ask if a student is in the lower 5% or 1-2% of the class, and conversely not care where the student ranks in the top 50% of the class; it makes no sense.)
