Nerd News: Grade Inflation in Law School

Are you serious?
One day next month every student at Loyola Law School Los Angeles will awake to a higher grade point average.

But it’s not because they are all working harder.

The school is retroactively inflating its grades, tacking on 0.333 to every grade recorded in the last few years. The goal is to make its students look more attractive in a competitive job market.
*Sigh.* Law prof Ann Althouse has a nice commentary.
