U of L grading is absolutely brutal, at least in the econ/finance programs. I'm an excellent student, A's in calculus etc and I could barely crack a 60 or a B in the Msc in Econ. I attended U of Southern Cal for BA, I'm in Mensa and I really have no idea what they were looking for to award a 68-70. My at home assignments were all 65+ but on the big kahuna, the final essay exams, I hovered around low sixties and I felt I aced them as well as the at home essays. I thought it was a great program, but they are ball busters with the grading. I found it to be pretty disconcerting and puzzling frankly.
