Well, I beat you on the Bachelor's duration scale - took me 12, but I'm a baby-boomer who hadn't heard of a participation reward until my friends' kids started getting them. I stifled my "Say what!?" reaction.

I agree with you about the items in this list, but there's one thing that I think you got quite wrong in reason if not effect. The "I always got A's" issue.

 I grew up at a top level college where my father taught many moons ago, and it is not the exclusive problem of Gen Whatever that they haven't got C's before. Nor is it because they've been "Given" A's all their lives. It has always been the case that as one progresses through education the curve moves. The High School "A" gets into a good school with all the other High School A's and someone has to get the B's through F's and it turns out to be them. It happens again in post-college education and again in free-standing doctoral programs that require a master's. 

I'm sure it's complicated by the participation reward phenomenon, but I wouldn't lay its underlying cause at that door.
