I joined the Marines, got married, became a cop, lived life, finally returned to the university and to my dismay discovered I had been kicked out. I had to petition to get back in. I was re-admitted on probation.
Ten years later, a 3 page transcript (because I withdrew from so many courses), a bi-modal distribution of As and Fs, I finally earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Ten years, of being the best (Dean's List), and the worst (Probation, Ds, Fs, Withdrawals and Incompletes). College never was an easy walk for me.
