I was wondering if any schools in top 20 graded completely on cases / homework / projects and did not administer any exams?
I am a good test taker but find exams get in my way of actually learning because I get in a *cram for the exam* state of mind.

Get a magic 8 ball and shake it. I bet it'll come up "Unlikely"

While it's next to impossible to have *only* case studies.. even for exams. I think Harvard and Darden teach exclusively through case studies and even their evaluations are case study based. So good luck with that.

Turns out exams at darden are "open book" and can be "taken anywhere" (including a hotel in Thailand, if that's what floats your boat)... and some of them are in fact actually case studies.

Cool thanks. I guess I realize NO exams is not likely. I went to kind of a junky undergrad and basically to get an A in any course: download professor's slides > memorize > take exam based off memorizing slides. It was just a cycle of cramming and forgetting. I'd like a school that focuses on learning and development rather than exam taking.

Darden added to my apply list
