    I know Penn State uses a Pass/Fail system, including Honors, High Pass, and Low Pass (? I think). Which basically translates into letter grades but makes you feel better nonetheless. I can't remember the % point breakdowns but you can find it on their website somewhere. Hope this helps!

    Northwestern is P/F for the first two years and then H/P/F for the clinical years.

    if you're interested in having all this information at your fingertips, i suggest getting the Princeton Review's Big Book on Medical Schools...

    The University of Miami is P/F for the pre-clinical years, but if a professor gives you a numerical score in the course then that is also included on your transcripts. How this can be P/F is beyond me.:confused: The third year is not P/F (they give you only numerical scores), and the fourth year is strictly P/F (no numerical scores reported).

    I don't know offhand which schools are pass/fail, but I'll second the suggestion to buy the Princeton Review Big Book on Medical Schools. It's got this information on every med school in the US and Canada.

    U Chicago is true P/F [no class ranking pre-clinical] :D

    not sure which schools are, but places like Yale that give AOA have to rank students to determine this.
