Can 90% Of People Do Better Than Average?

Calvin is looking the data of 600 students on Brilliant. He realized that each of them had the same number of Facebook friends amongst these 600 students, and that each of them had a distinct numerical rating.

A student is admired by his peers if he has a rating that is higher than strictly more than half of his friends (out of these 600 students). Out of these 600 students, what is the most number of students that can be admired?
