heyo! just wondering if i should address a class i chose to pass/fail back in spring 2020 when the pandemic first started. i was planning on mentioning/explaining it for schools with covid prompts, but should i also be bringing it up in secondaries with no covid prompt in the "anything else" or optional essays? i'm just not sure about where pass/fail during covid lands on the needs-to-be-explicitly-addressed scale.

The prompt would definitely help. I don't think it would really make a huge deal to mention it (not a positive or a negative) since many programs had similar policies enacted in response.
