However, we've had a lot of people leave- both in being asked to repeat the year and in just leaving for good. A little over 10% of the class so far. What's normal? Aside from the fact that those people are losing a ton of tuition money that they've already paid, those people at the bottom were padding my rank, so every one that leaves just increases competition which sucks for me. Plus it's tuition money that the school loses as we go on to M2. It just doesn't seem to be in anyone's best interests to drop students, but maybe this is completely normal.
