Verbosity, you do understand that paying people not to breed constitutes eugenics, don't you?

Don't attendings practice medicine too?

isnt a key question in this exactly what % (if any set %) earn a high pass?  if it is, say 10% or less, then i think absy's pt about it being specifically important for top clerkships and professorships

That would also depend on whether or not they curve right

I think it has less to do with "not believing in grading" than it has to do with reducing competition and improving quality of life for students

But it's usually not just A, B, C, D, and F

It's usually A+, A, A-, etc right?

So there is a lot of pressure when you have 13 possible grades, one of which forces you to re-take the course (although in many PhD programs, for example, you can't get less than a B or so twice a year or you'll be kicked out, and you have you keep above a very high average or you're kicked out)

But when you just have 3 possible grades, like high pass/pass/fail, you can relax a lot more, does that make sense?

Of course it's better to have all High Passes, but it's a lot easier to score a High Pass than it is an A+, and a "pass" or even a "low pass" looks better than a D or a D-

What med schools?

Some have grades, but the majority use pass/fail or high pass/pass/fail etc

Also it's nearly impossible to fail out of med school...

For some reason MDs are overly-idealized in this country, I think it's because the AMA keeps tight reign on the # of residency positions available each year
