Student Sues School For $1.3 Million Over Poor Grade
A former Lehigh University student says the C+ she received hurts her job potential.
Because of the average mark on her transcript, Megan Thode, 27, was not be able to become a licensed professional counselor, the lawsuit claims.
Thode, who was attending her graduate program for free, also believes the low mark was part of an effort to force her out of the department, her lawyer, Richard J. Orloski, told The Morning Call.
Now she wants the grade changed, arguing that she was unfairly marked down by a teacher with a vendetta.
Thode believes she was singled out because she is an advocate for gay rights.
