No, college isn't truly for everyone. But state schools such as UC have to be in a position to accept students that wouldn't get into private schools that have higher standards for admissions.Originally Posted by DoogMinAmo
If you party your way through college, I think one of two things happens:
1. You figure out how to party and still get good enough grades to get your degree.
2. You don't figure out the above and you get suspended for bad grades and/or have to quit college.
And seeing as how the college isn't going to know who will or will not become a "partier," how could they have any control over it when it comes to admissions?
I coasted through a good number of my college classes, but still graduated with honors. Is that my fault, or the university's fault? Do I not deserve my degree because I didn't "try" as much as I could have?
