    Actually that would probably strip ALL her privliges. If they want perfection then a C is not gonna make them decide that she is working as hard as she can.

    Her grandparents are probibly like mine. Well in the fact that they are crazy and have some obsession with "family honor" (even thought know one accnoleges that or calls it that). We have constant battles with my Grandfather's brother's family as to who is better (well at least funnier)). So maybe that is their way of pushing family honor, which at times is quite unbearible if not unreasonable. I would not know exactly since i have not met her or her family

    Grandparents are great, when taken in moderate doses.

    To get into something as hyper-competitive as veterinary school requires a huge effort. Some people make good grades too easily and develop rotten study habits. As things get tougher at higher levels, people who perhaps have less intelligence but learned to work harder will pass them by. So the effort is more important than the grades.

    I watch about thirty minutes of TV a day.... but I'm online for WAY longer than that. (right now i'm writing a paper lol)
    hey, if you don't need to study, then DON'T STUDY! why would you do something you don't need to do?
    when you need to study, then study. If you go to college and don't want to change your study habits, then you shouldn't be in college.
