Schools with no grading curve... thoughts?
« on: April 11, 2010, 03:01:53 AM »
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?

CalSouthern is on a noncurve. There you have to get a 71% in everything just to get a C-and graded assignments all seeseter long(final worth 60% of grade)

The only non-curved schools worth going to are Harvard, Yale, and Stanford.
