04:48 pm - something is wrong with this ranking system
From a letter of recommendation form:

1. Well below average (lower 5%)
2. Average (middle 40%)
3. Well above average (top 35%)
4. Excellent (top 15%)
5. Outstanding (top 5%)

Yes, those numbers total to 100%, but... then the median is "well above average" and the words "middle" and "top" are used incorrectly.

I'm going to go with:
1 = 1st to 4th percentile
2 = 5th to 44th percentile
3 = 45th to 79th percentile
4 = 80th to 94th percentile
5 = 95th percentile and up

Meh?
