Pham, a junior at Chamberlain, wrote this story recently for USA Today College about considering the possibility of grade deflation at colleges.
Grade deflation — the opposite of grade inflation, when A’s are so frequent among students that they lose their value — is when higher grades like an A or a B are difficult to get because only a small number of those grades can be given out. Sound bogus?
She writes: "Often overlooked by prospective college applicants, grade deflation remains a mystery to many. For those who are aware of it, however, it is understood that its presence on college campuses forewarns controversy."

And we're curious: Do you think it's right that some colleges practice grade deflation? Would you stay away from a college that uses it?
