How does the grading policy work? What constitutes an A, a B, a C, etc., and do most professors curve? I took AP bio and chem (5,4) respectively, and plan on taking the MCAT at the end of sophomore year. Would you recommend taking those classes again? I could test out of chem with my SAT II scores b/c a 4 does not allow you to skip freshman chem class.
What are the freshman dorms like? When I visited, I only got a quick glimpse, but they looked really small. Are there cooking facilities?
I spoke to some current students on campus, and they said that the professors accents really arent that bad, and that it only took about a week to adjust and understand what theyre saying. But are classes usually taught by professors, or are they taught by grad students?
Do current students get football ticket discounts to the games?
Where would you recommend for freshman housing?
Since Pitt is a fairly large university, is it hard to get in touch w/ profs/the administration? For example, if I had a concern and needed to talk to someone who could help me fix it, would it take days/weeks for them to answer my call/email?
