Channel 4 ran a story last night about a new tactic being employed by the TCU admissions department to curb incoming students from slacking off in their final semester of high school. If a prospective students' final transcript shows a sharp decline in quality after they were accepted to TCU, they are now being asked to explain themselves. In some cases, their admission can be rescinded.
What do you think- is this a noble move by TCU to insure that students arrive on campus with the correct mindset for academic achievement, or is this a scheme to improve incoming students' GPA so that the admissions department folks can be asked to speak at the next conference they attend? Is senioritis a problem that extends into a student's time in college, or is it a relaxed victory lap that kids deserve before heading off to face the next challenge in their young lives?
