I apologize if this has already been discusses somewhere, but I couldn't find it in a search. I have been advised to attend a school with pass/fail grading if at all possible by a current med student. So far I have interviewed at one school with complete P/F grading, and one with A-F grading. I thought that P/F was preferable, but after speaking with another med student I'm confused. Is it true that the P/f school still has to rank all students for residency applications? Does that mean that P/F is really no different from A-F?
