A College Acceptance Letter Is Not a Guarantee

Your kid gets accepted to the college of his choice. He’s got the letter in hand. But then some bad behavior surfaces from his past.

Hi! Anna here. I wanted to share one of my favorite live interviews that I did recently. It was for the Top of Mind show on Sirius XM 143, and it's on a topic we get a lot of questions about. Here's the blurb from the show:

Your kid gets accepted to the college of his choice. He’s got the letter in hand. But then some bad behavior surfaces from his past. The college gets wind and rescinds the acceptance. By all accounts this kind of thing is rare, but a high-profile case last month involving Parkland Shooting survivor and conservative activist, Kyle Kashuv, got us thinking about how colleges make these decisions –and how they decide who is a good fit in the first place. For Kashuv, the college was Harvard and the bad behavior involved racist comments made in text messages and a private online document shared with some classmates when he was 16. Kashuv apologized, but that didn’t change Harvard’s decision to rescind his acceptance."

Here's the audio link.
