Hey guys..just a question re: med school grading and class ranks. I'd imagine this differs by school but what is the grading system generally like in med school--is it an A, B, C.. system or more likely to be a pass, fail, honors pass type system.

Also, do med schools rank their students--i.e. so-and-so was ranked #2 at graduation (or after MS1, MS2, MS3) while someone else was ranked #65? I'm particularly curious about this for Penn Med, but if anyone can provide general info that would be helpful as well.

Penn is P/F during module one, H/P/F during module two, H/HP/P/F during clinics. The dean's letter divides students into 3 tiers: outstanding, excellent, very good. The dean's list rating does change from year to year, however.
