Beware the Rescinded Admission Acceptance!

Some students take a victory lap during their senior year. By that I mean they do the minimum and less in classes. Often they do this because they've been accepted at colleges and feel that they have nothing to lose. That is not the case. Colleges reserve the right to rescind (take back) admission offers and/or scholarship offers due to academic performance. They do this typically at the end of fall term of senior year after mid-year grade reports but can also do it in June of the senior year. Seniors who apply to colleges that do not require mid-year grade reports often think they are immune to rescinded offers. They are at great risk because they will not be rescinded until June when it is too late to apply for admission to most other colleges.

When will your kid bloom?

Teenagers and toddlers share a common growth experience: they mature and achieve life milestones at different rates. Nobody says that the child who learns to walk a few weeks or months earlier is superior to his peers. We just celebrate the accomplishment. However, when toddlers get to their teens they face the unrealistic expectation that they all will master the same tasks at the same time. They are all expected to be prepared to handle a heavy load of advanced placement courses and to be ready to max out the SAT.
