The University of Southern California Gould School of Law is the latest to consider grade reforms, but don't expect a sea change in Los Angeles. USC Law Dean Robert Rasmussen has proposed modifying the school's grading curve — a more modest change than switching from letter grades to a pass/fail system, as several top law schools have done in recent months. Should the school adopt the proposed change, the average USC law student will graduate with a GPA that is 0.1 higher — or about half a grade higher.
