Dear readers,

Getting into college is a very stressful experience. There are forms and expenses, some require evidence of extra-curricular activities, and sometimes good grades in school aren’t enough. It comes as no surprise, then, that even the admissions process is a grueling exercise that not everyone survives.

However, there are a select few who misunderstand the whole concept of college (and how to actually get in) so entirely that we had to make a roundup about them. Here are ten crazy stories from the Not Always Right archives about people who failed college before they even got in.
