Thanks Joyce, I agree with what you say .. it’s just discouraging because he’s already flunked out of two other schools. I didn’t get involved in either instance, told him I had confidence he’d do what was necessary and would ask for help if he needed it … both times he said don’t worry Mom, everything is fine… and then he flunked every single course, because he cut classes and didn’t do assigned work. Right now he is not flunking, though his grades are mediocre. However if he were expelled for plagiarism it will would be very, very serious because of his immigration status … but maybe he will just have to suffer the awful consequences if he makes that choice.
