It is perhaps ironic that everyone loves to tout a Harvard or Yale Law Degree as something almost holy and miles above every other law school graduate, but the fact of the matter is, it is quite impossible to ever really determine how competent those ivy leaguers are since they no longer give out actual letter grades. Instead, students are graded on a system of either Honors, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail, and according to Business Insider, virtually no one ever fails, and very few every get stamped with a Low Pass mark.
Yale Law School is widely regarded as the top law school in the U.S.
The school doesn’t have regular grades, just Honors, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail. Almost no one fails, so basically the worst you can do is get a low pass.
Not only does Yale Law have a different grading structure, but it has a unique culture as well. –Business Insider
