Ranking groups at GS is pretty pointless as almost all groups are top 3 across the street. The general ranking however is probably something like this. 

1. TMT

2. FIG

3-4. CRG/HC

5. IND

6. NatRes

RE is pretty niche so not sure how they rank but would guess top 3 in RE across the street, know a couple people in the group and they love the culture and people. CRG, HC and IND are all pretty interchangeable with CRG and HC slightly above due to better culture. Heard NatRes is a top group as well but due to it being natural resources probably ranked last in terms of preference. All in all, if you're at GS in a classic group its really up to you to do well and showcase well in interviews for exit opps as almost all classic groups send people to MF PE
