Senior Grades are Important for College Admissions

April 30, 2012

Some high school seniors believe that once they have been accepted to a college and sent in their deposit, they can relax and not worry about their grades anymore. This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Most colleges request both first and second semester grades.  They also expect students to take all of the courses they have listed on their college applications and to not skip classes or miss tests.  While the college admissions process is almost over for high school seniors, colleges can still rescind an acceptance.  Colleges are sending a message that they have no problem turning down an applicant in the summer who has slacked off his second semester.  They always have a wait list with students who have worked hard until graduation.  It is obvious that students need to continue studying and not allow senioritis to get in the way.
