We all know about schools who give higher grades than deserved. But what about the opposite? Right now I am in a law school that has never had a graduating student with a 90 average in decades, actually ever. In undergrad school, some professors didn't give an A to 97s or 98s. I don't know if I chose poorly, or if it is/was a backlash to the grade inflation of the '70s and '80s (and maybe some in the '90s). What are your stories? But I have heard that if you get into a really top college/university, there is still grade inflation. Either the students are all naturally 95s or the school, almost always a premiere private institution, does not want to lose out on huge tuition. I once walked into a hall at Stanford and looked at a posted list of that semester's MBA students in one of their classes. Every freaking student had an A. That being said, they are one of the best business schools in the universe.
