While schools like Darden and Harvard routinely make the top tier, I find it scary that they count something like 50% of a student's grades on participation. If you're in a class of 50-70 people, I can't imagine what it's like to get your ideas in the ring when everyone else is also trying to.
For people in those kinds of programs, any thoughts? Is it as competitive / cutthroat as it initially appears to get high marks for participation?
