Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Former student sues A&M over grades | Bryan/College Station, Texas - The Eagle: "A student who transferred from Texas A&M is suing her former university, saying an academic counselor recommended that she intentionally fail three classes.

The classes were taken in the fall of 2007, the first semester of her freshman year, according to the suit, and the student approached the counselor because she was having trouble understanding her professors.

The student, Jennifer Temple, wanted to Q-drop the classes, but she contends in her suit that the adviser told her that she would lose her parents' health benefits if she did. Students are given a limited number of Q-drops, which allow them to drop a class from their schedule within the first 50 days of classes."

Gig 'em!

One of the very first things I learned as a freshman was to avoid the academic counselors at all costs. But even this is a little hard to wrap my brain around.

Looks like UT would show a little more compassion.
