When Do Colleges Rescind Acceptances?

    Yes, awesome post.
    Let's say that a student fails 2 out of 5 APs that he/she was suppose to self-study. Would the college rescind?
    Plus, in the case of UCs system - would the UC rescind if a student gets an F in her quarter grade? Or is it the semester grade that counts?

    archi92- If you mean failing the 2 out of 5 AP tests, that shouldn't matter but if you mean failing 2 of 5 AP classes, that could be a problem and its usually the semester grade that counts, not the quarter grade because, at least at my school, the semester grade is the only thing that goes on the transcript so as long as you can pull out a B or a C for the semester you should be fine.

    I wonder if there's a higher threshhold of "failing" for the more selective colleges? IE, for students who've been accepted to HYPSM with near-perfect GPAs, would a C be viewed in the same way that an F would be for other less selective schools?

    Not that I plan to do this... but just curious :P

    a girl at my boarding school was kicked out of boarding school for using illegal drugs and her acceptance from her prestigious university was taken away.

    Yeah I'm basically ending AP Bio and AP BC Calculus with a C. Hopefully it wouldn't put me in hot water.

    There are many, many threads on CC with students worrying about being rescinded. There are very, very few threads with actual examples of students being rescinded. I can't recall seeing one in which I was surprised about a rescission.

    Hello! I was wondering if suspensions could get your admission revoked because I got suspended today for having 9 tardies in my 1st period. And i'm hoping that it really doesn't affect my admission much..

    Kiggafosho--Today's suspension probably won't have any impact on your college verdicts, but if it happens again, it might. So you will need to get to school on time for the rest of the year! (Then, when you get to college, maybe you can avoid scheduling morning classes. ;))

    For UCs, what if the mark reported was slightly different than the mark on the transcript? This happened because our course mark was given by our exam mark, but the transcript was not updated. Would this affect my decision?

    I am looking at potentially 2 As 2 Bs and 1 C for my final grades in ALL AP classes. Until this year I had never gotten anything besides As all through high school and have taken 2 honors and (including this year) 10 ap classes. WILL I BE RESCINDED?!?!? I am so scared, this is the only college I applied to due to sports* and I do not want to miss out. I simply overloaded myself with ap courses and some are much harder than I expected + the inevitable case of senioritis.

    ***I was accepted early to stanford for athletics. I did not receive a scholarship though, I turned it down because I could get more money through financial aid.

    ^^^^ oh and this translates to a 3.2 unweighted, 4.2 unweighted GPA

    a friend's senior d (18yrs) was arrested for having alcohol and marijuana, in her car, just completed a pretrial diversion program and is hoping it will be expunged. (arrest occurred after applications were in) wondering how this may play out--she heard from an attorney that college housing may do background checks, any experience with these type of situations?

    While I'm telling my son he has to finish strong in HS for the sake of the placement tests he is required to take this summer for fall registration placement, it made me think that even if he does get a bad case of senioritis, but does well on the placements, wouldn't that mitigate the bad grades, if any?
