I have been hearing contradicting ideas regarding course grade in graduate school
a) Grades do not matter (just get above 3.0)
b) B is a failing grade in grad school (anything but an A is unacceptable)
c) Grades matter only for fellowships (i.e. 3.5+ should be sufficient)
Any opinion will be appreciated. And I am mainly interested for Phd program in bio, bme, or computational biology field. Would MS or PhD make a difference?
