    Buy an msar, it has that information in it. There is no way for me to just list them off real quickly. There are probably 30-40 schools out of 100+ that are p/f.

    Try out this link: http://services.aamc.org/currdir/section1/grading1.cfm

    You can search by schools of interest or by grading "intervals." For example P/F would be under "2 Intervals." If you want P/F all four years, search under "Required Clinical Clerkships" as quite a few schools have the first year or two of basic science P/F then switch to stricter grading scales once you hit the wards third year.

    are pass/fail schools ranked? What i meen is do they take a percentage grade for the course and then if your above a certain percent you pass but then use your percentage to rank your possition within your class.

    University of Chicago is pass/fail the first two years and does not rank its students. You do get grades in your third year, on an Honors/High Pass/Pass/Low Pass/Fail system. Fourth year as far as I know returns to a pass/fail system.
