Not when people go to the school to get a degree.... so they can get hired.... and then the admissions office turns down the guy who has the job...
but lacks the degree. We are dealing with a situation where the (student's,) GPA and test scores have become the 'holy-grail' of fitness and
intelligence; independent thought and creativity are being ignored, or even worse, squelched. A fitness score IS great, don't get me wrong. But one
good idea doesn't compare to five mixed-quality ideas that each spawn five more mixed-quality ideas, etc. I want to go to college; but it seems like
once you get stuck with one, that is it. If you mess up, or if a place is a bad match, you're pretty much stuck.
