    I realize this topic has probably been discussed to death, but I am new here so I would like to bring it back to life if I may.

    Does it really make a difference whether or not a school utilizes a letter grading system or an honors/pass/fail?

    As far as I can tell, the benefit of pass/fail schools is less stress and less competitiveness (within the student body). I think everybody has some form of ABCDF grading for the clinical years.

    I have also heard of High Pass /Honors/Pass/Fail which seems to be comparable to A/B/C/D/F in disguise?
