Pass/Fail Grading System

Recommended Posts

Hey 🙂

I am about halfway through my first semester of PA school, and like a lot of others, are very interested in applying for a residency. However, knowing that grades are an important factor for interviews/acceptance, does anyone have any experience on how a Pass/Fail/Honors PA school grading system will translate? 

Even though it is overall pass/fail, we still get % scores on our quizzes (haven't taken an exam yet)...so maybe it's possible for me to still get a GPA at the end of graduation?

At the program I attended, I believe grades were only considered as part of your application. A big emphasis was placed on LORs, and even more so on your professionalism and passion in the interview. Pass/fail grading shouldn’t hold you back.
