He was failing his foreign language classes online. He was here with no money and nowhere to stay. He wasn't going to get in. And before you start ragging on the kid for not getting it done, don't There was a lot going on. He wasn't going to get in to UW. He could go to Oregon or Alabama and not have to worry about retaking the classes. With all the crap going on in Seattle and back home, it was just too much.
A long series of circumstances with plenty of blame to go around, UW wasn't blameless. It was unfortunate. It's be rehashed quite a bit. And honestly, I think most, if they'd had the same circumstances at the time would have made the same decision. It was a messed up deal on all sides. Unfortunately, a 17 year old was put in a bad situation. new city, no money, no place to stay, deaths in his family back home, financial constraints, trying to cram 2 years worth of foreign language classes into a couple of months and not doing well.....
