I recently asked a girl out and she said "no I'm not ready for a relationship and I think of us as really good friends." We talk a lot and during dismissal we walk out together and she calls me a loyal friend and one of her best friends. how do I get out of the friend zone?

You don't really have a chance except to continue being there for her as a friend. Something may happen in her life to change how she views you but there is little to nothing you can do to change her.1

Once you are in the friend zone it can be very hard to get out of it. It is much easier if you avoid ending up there in the first place, by having the confidence to approach a girl as someone who is attracted to her and by refusing to settle for a platonic place in her life.
When you are already in the friend zone you have to make a decision about whether or not you are prepared to risk losing this girl in order to push for more, because that could well happen. You need to let her know that yes, you are a friend but you're not her shoulder to cry on and then abandon when she is off with her boyfriend (should she get one). You are not an emotional crutch, you are not her emotional sounding board except for on rare occasions. You have to change the dynamic of the friendship.1
