The piece by Brennan Barnard, who writes about college admissions for Forbes, pulls together examples and advice from enrollment leaders at a variety of institutions, including Elon. Barnard notes that most college acceptance letters include some variation of a message such as, “Keep working hard because we will be doing a final transcript review at the end of the year and your offer of admission is contingent upon the successful completion of high school with the same commitment to excellence that you demonstrated in your application.”
