As the school year winds down, it's tempting for students to become less focused, especially seniors who have already been accepted to college. However, every year, colleges revoke a small percentage of acceptances to admitted students whose grades have noticeably slipped or who have experienced disciplinary actions.
According to Paul Seegert, admissions director at the University of Washington, 10 to 20 acceptance letters are revoked each year, and although a student can appeal the decision, the results are almost always the same.
