As a solid B student myself in high school, I love articles that normalize B’s. As a college counselor, of course I have to be transparent about the A expectation of top colleges and universities. However, many of my B students have gone on to do great things in college and in life—no Ivy-league or top-30 school required.
Two of my favorite takeaways from this old-ish article that I have seen be true for some of my favorite B students:
- Leading rarely has anything to do with pure intellect alone.
- B students flourish by using a combination of good-enough mental horsepower with a kind of emotional intelligence that gives them the ability to relate to people.
