    The policy I suggested deals with that too, the exact same way a pass/fail grade is judged. Also, A4A is basically not getting implemented anywhere, other than 1-2 scattered schools.

    You really aren't going to be that badly off. We aren't robots. We know that pass/fail in spring 2020 means something different than in other periods. We read files carefully and letters of reference carry a lot of weight. If you want to convey strong performance in a particular class, have the professor from that class write a reference letter. Most schools let you include more than three letters.
