Which Schools are (mostly) Pass/Fail?

Which Schools are (mostly) Pass/Fail?
« on: June 28, 2007, 02:14:21 PM »
Wondering which law schools do mostly pass/fail, at least for 2nd and 3rd year of school.  I know Yale, but where else?  Some schools only allow a student to take 1 or 2 pass/fail classes during all of law school.

Thanks.

Northeastern in Boston has a non-traditional grading scale

Boalt/Berkeley grades on a pass / fail scale.


Not aware of any others, but they could be out there.

There is no law school (that i have ever heard of) that truly has a pass/fail grading scheme. Yale's is something like Honors, High Pass, Pass, Fail; Boalt has High Honors, Honors, Pass, Fail. At Boalt, I think, the top 10% get HH; the next 30% get H, and everyone else gets Ps (so basically A, B+, B). Don't fool yourself - these are grades. After all, a rose by any other name....
