It seems more strange that it should be equal to evidence. And it seems more strange that it isn't mandatory pass--it isn't mandatory that we pass professionalism. What does that say about SLS?
Given that 70% of students will have a P in it, what does that say about their ability to interview and work? Especially for people with less WE, I think it could be more damaging than helpful. I would give up the chance for another H to avoid having to explain a P in professionalism on my transcript.
I disagree again. Some people here are absolutely not professional. Also, have we confirmed the professionalism part is curved? Would be interesting if it was not.
I'm K-JD, and I don't buy the less WE issue. You should still know how to act professionally. That means not being on your phone or laptop in meetings. It means dressing professionally for oral arguments. Meeting all deadlines. Participating appropriately but not being the office asshole who dominates a conversation and nobody wants to work with.
It also assumes employers do more than five transcripts a cursory glance to see certain classes are there and then count H's. Not sure it's accurate to assume they do more than that.
