My son is in 2nd semester at state University and just received Principal nomination from Congressman. I am very proud but also concerned his first semester college grades will cause him to be denied. I won't go into detail regarding accomplishments, but will that matter if he completed his first semester at the University with a 2.6 GPA?? He is doing considerably better now in his second semester, but will that make a difference? I'm concerned all his efforts were blown apart with one difficult transitioning college semester Anybody have a similar situation? Will receiving principal nomination make any difference?
