A few law schools do not have grading curves. Has anyone heard whether these schools have higher/lower attrition rates? From what I've heard from my 1L friends, grading curves can help in courses where students would otherwise flunk on the standard 0-100% scale. On the otherhand, I've heard grading curves often lower grades of student based on the performance of their peers. What are your thoughts when there is no curve?
