cliopatra Posted September 9, 2011 Share Posted September 9, 2011 What are your opinions on getting an A- in History grad programs? I've been hearing different things. Some profs tell us that an A- is great, and others that an A- means you're doing okay but really should be getting As. An A isn't really given out in our dept unless work is top-notch (which I agree with). So it's really hard to earn an A. I hear from people in other programs in various departments that As are expected and usually given. Seems there are large discrepancies. B + is a warning sign. So what's the deal with A-? Reason I ask is because I'm going to apply to PhD programs (Canada) and have finished the M.A. with four A minuses and five As. Is this good? I don't know what my classmates are getting we've maintained a friendly policy of just not sharing grades with each other. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
