There has been no grade inflation, even though the credentials of our students - whether measured by undergraduate G.P.A., LSAT score or prior life attainments - are far stronger than they were 20 years ago.
With a fixed curve and a talented student body, an Honors grade represents a substantial achievement and a High Honors grade an outstanding one. For internal purposes, the Berkeley campus translates both Honors and High Honors grades into its system as A's."
My GF is a 1L. The students are very chill and are not cutthroat towards each other whatsoever.
Anecdotally, I can attest to this as well. good luck to everyone, by the way, submitting after dec release, ucb is one of my top choices
