Thinking of taking The Law of Real Estate Development and Finance with Dana but I know that the Kellogg classes don't do +/- grading so I'm hoping they give out a lot of As and not many Bs since I don't have much of a business background.
Kellogg recommends that professors follow a curve but doesn't require it for non "core" classes (finance, accounting, marketing). The curve is approx. 40% A, 50% B, 10% C (I think). Some profs throw the curve out entirely while others adhere to it pretty closely.
It is possible for a Kellogg prof to do +/- grading but they don't do it regularly. I think they sometimes do it to cut law students a break since they know grades matter more at the LS.
Considering taking accounting for decision making with Magee, anyone have experience with this class? It's capped at 25 people, so I'm assuming it will be uncurved?
A cap on law student enrollment at Kellogg does not equal a 25 person class. Also, I think that class is one with a mandatory curve.
