Editorial: Some rare advice

The Hatchet’s editorial board argues that the new degree audit service doesn’t deserve any praise, and calls on both parents and students to continue to challenge the advising status quo.

If GW was a student, fixing the CCAS advising system would be a major assignment long past deadline. For years, advising has been a serious deficiency for the school, and something that has had little to no recent progress. Now, the University is rolling out a degree auditing system to help students track their credits for a given degree. This system is too little and too late, but is being presented as a major step toward a final solution to the advising system, a claim that neither parents nor students should allow to go unchallenged.
