The good news is that you've been accepted by Hard2getinto University. The bad news may be just around the corner. It is not unusual to see students and their parents working overtime to get the student into the reach school on their list. It is surprising that few realize what that will mean to them when their first semester of college academic work actually begins.
Hard2getinto University is also hard when it comes to course difficulty. Families like to point to the high graduation rates for such schools. That rate is mostly about the students who had the best qualifications when they applied. A small percentage of students who enter are less prepared for the academic challenge. These are the students likely to be included in the small number of students who are placed on academic probation and then dismissed.
There is further heartbreak for such students. Easy2getinto University previously offered them a scholarship if they would agree to attend as a new freshman but will no longer accept them after Hard2getinto University dismisses them for academic performance issues.
The lesson here is to make sure that the college the student chooses from their many offers is the best fit for them academically, socially and financially.
