Towson's grad rate seems to be the typically low # for a public school, so don't feel badly. Your son seems to be falling in the graduating column. There are some publics with high grad rates and we have discussed that on other threads. Don't forget that with respect to Towson 1/4 of the students have sats below 490v and 500m. That would explain part of the lackluster graduation rates. In the meantime, if your son is taking the cpa exam he should do well bcs Towson seems to have a high first time pass rate.
