HLS is adjusting its pass/fail system
« on: September 21, 2010, 01:39:04 PM »

The changes, which will allow the Law School to calculate Latin Honors more precisely, were put in place over the summer and included in the 2010-2011 Handbook of Academic Policies, but were never publicly announced.

The biggest change is that each grade will now correspond to a point value—four points are awarded for a High Pass, three points for Pass, two points for Low Pass, and zero points for a failing grade.

Looks like, even without grades, there are still grades at HLS.
