Do You think Colleges Accept Lies From Students who try to get in?
Ms. Norman, A formidable college counselor , was interviewed by CBS about the college admissions process. It was revealing because she said that many kids cheat. In her opinions, more students should be honest and not cheat .
"I'd rather take a kid with lower scores who is honest," she said.
She continued:"If you get caught, why risk it? It's okay to have a weakness.. just address it head on ... I knew one student who ahd one bad grade. She explained why it had happened and treated it like an anomaly ..she went on to get a full scholarship!"
Norton is the Director of My College Counselor.
She said:Students are not honest enough. They have to be."
Please let us know how you feel about what Norton has said; and do you agree or disagree? Why or why not?
