I was having lunch with a colleague last week, and she told me a story about her daughter, who began college at a public four-year university in Virginia and eventually decided to transfer to another public four-year university in Virginia. Upon arriving at the second university, she asked how many of the credits she earned at the first university would transfer over. The answer was, “we don’t know — we’re looking into it.” One of the courses they didn’t know about was introduction to geology, taken at a university with a national reputation in the sciences. Her parents got so frustrated that they drove to the second university, picked up their daughter, and brought her back to the first one, where she re-enrolled.
