Which B-Schools have Grade Non-Disclosure (GND) [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2011, 12:17
Hi all,
This question gets asked all of the time, so here is the list - you can get the full posting by visiting our Blog at Inside MBA Admissions

School: Grade Non-Disclosure?

Harvard: No

Stanford: Yes

Booth: Yes

Wharton: No

Columbia: Yes

Tuck: No

Kellogg: No

Sloan: No

Haas: Yes

Fuqua: No

Darden: No

Stern: No

Ross: No

Yale: Yes

Johnson: No

Tepper: Yes

Anderson: No

Kenan-Flagler: No

Goizueta: No

It is important to understand the subtle differences between GND policies in the table above. Recognize that there are two entities at each school, the School itself and the elected Student Council, and both come into play with GND. For example, at Carnegie Mellon (Tepper), the school states: “The COC (career services) prohibits employers and students from discussing Tepper grades during the initial COC facilitated interview”; while at Chicago Booth, a more restrictive policy is caged with the following note: “This policy was adopted by students on October 6, 2000. It is not a policy of Chicago Booth or the University of Chicago”. The difference being that recruiters could technically ask students to disclose grades at Chicago (and students who violate the policy would only face the contempt of the Student Body). Both policies have the same result (GND), however the tone of each is different.

Because of the differences in policies, it is helpful to think about GND as a continuum from “Very GND” to “No GND”. One method for thinking about this has six levels:

1. School sets a policy for GND (e.g. Tepper)
2. School does not have grades, or may use a difficult method for recruiters to understanding them
3. Student Body formally determines GND (common among GND schools)
4. School or Student Body states that it is the student’s choice to disclosure grades to recruiters
5. School drafts a policy essentially saying students are free to release grades to recruiters, but the school will not actually release grades (e.g. Wharton)
6. School releases grades directly to recruiters (unaware of this practice)

For the purpose of the table above, schools with policies in the 1-3 range are classified as GND schools, while those in the 4-6 are classified as non-GND schools. Information for the categorization came from published records of school or student policies (or lack thereof). Since these policies change regularly and there can be subjectivity as to the effectiveness of policy #3 or #4, please feel free to update us with practices at your school.
