1] Is it characteristic of a university to post semester grades and ranks in a public place for all to see? I haven't decided whether this is undergraduate or med school yet -- but does this happen at all? If so, would they post something like "97.6" or "3.8" or just "A"? How often a year would this happen? Once per semester?
2] What sort of grades are considered "good" in med school? Silly question, but I constantly hear about how difficult it is. Do people actually graduate from med school with 4.0 GPAs?
