Today our professor gave the class a pep talk. He gave back the exams, the class average was 55. I received a 61, still not passing. The withdraw deadline is in two days. The girl who spent all spring break studying and redoing every homework assignment did exceedingly well. Even if I had the time back and did it again, I would not have forgone camping in lieu of studying.
I don’t gamble. I am inclined to withdraw from chemistry, receiving a W, instead of a potential C or D… Or any other letter in the alphabet.
I am on the cusp of passing. I could either get a C and progress in my course sequence or get a D for failing. I am taking 14 credit units this semester so a D, would bring my GPA down considerably. My transcript would reflect that I had taken the class twice. C is also not truly acceptable either.
Someone equated the first semester back to school with an awakening. In high school and college, my first semester was depressing, however I felt on top of the world by the time I graduated. Maybe, this time around, the same is true, and I need more time to adjust.
