"Accuracy of Support"

        College-level readers demand accuracy from writing they will trust.  One enormous difference between most high-school writing and college-level writing is that the latter is preparation for running the world.  High school diplomas usually will not qualify you to manage other people, to set policies, to write laws, or to judge the best course of action among alternatives.  Those are the kinds of tasks college should prepare you to undertake.  Mistakes in trivial writing harm no one.  Mistakes in documents that manage people will harm real human beings, including their authors, and that harm usually has further bad consequences.  For that reason, you must try, to the best of your ability, to tell the truth when you write.  College-level readers will perceive inaccuracy as a kind of "lie" in that it distorts your verbal picture of the world.
