I am a premed student who is considering Macalester. I would like to know if there is grade inflation, deflation, or neither at Macalester. The other school I’m considering is Grinnell.
I would say neither. Mac certainly isn’t like U of Chicago, or McGill. I know a couple of people who did their Pre med and pre- Dent(?) at Mac, and did fine. Grinnell would also be a great choice. Might be an even better school, but you would have to factor in the small rural Iowa location v. the urban location of Mac. Mac might have opportunities with some of the large research hospitals in the Twin cities for pre- med students.
