Here is a site concerning the rise of grade inflation. National Trends in Grade Inflation, American Colleges and Universities
The question is will grade deflation hurt those student applying tp professional/graduate schools from Colgate?
A previous post from a top 10 medical school student who graduated from Colgate states that,
"I would actually argue that Colgate is not the place to go if you are pre-med/dent/vet". "
" Colgate WILL NOT compare to an A from a higher ranked and more prestigious school that suffers from grade inflation."
" Most profs talk about how great Colgate is, and how recognized--and sure, that's true in some circles. For medical schools, its some unheard of LAC.
This is interesting topic for those who plan on choosing a college to attend, as if they don't already have enough on their minds.
