So recently I've been hearing about more schools that have internal rankings and say that they don't (). So I was wondering if y'all know if the University of Michigan does internal rankings? Or like internal percentiles/quartiles, adjectives in the MSPE, something like that.

Probably not but you could call them and ask

- Pre-clinical years are: pass or fail
- Clerkships are: honors, high pass, pass, or fail. Grades are based on a combination of shelf exams and clinical evaluations. With each grade they also report the distribution of students who achieved each category.
- They then combine everything for a cumulative quartile ranking.

This type of grading system is (the most?) common. True pass/fail schools are very rare. Honestly, with Step I going P/F you probably want some sort of stratification system to help yourself stand out.
