I’ve been having a year from hell but not school related. I’m sorry about all that… things will get better. If it makes you feel better I dropped a class too late and failed another class my last year of college. Your doing better than I ever did before I dropped out.

Not this year (DH had to save my rear end in philosophy and walked me through the entire paper process because I do not write those sort of papers) but last year I completely failed my greek class, it put my graduation off by a semester because of the cycle that ancient languages are on.

How steady was your GPA before this semester? My fail didn’t tank my GPA as much as I thought it would.

@imalittlebirdie: I’m sorry you’re struggling! Is it an option to get some tutoring?

@HappilyEverAfter54:  agreed. THis has been a bad year for me, I’m sure for a lot of people as well. I feel your pain

OP, I definitely had my semesters where I just didn’t do so hot, but I still ended up graduating with a 3.4 gpa. It could have been better, but I was still glad I was able to keep it that good.

I would definitely find out what your grading scale is at your school. At my university, you have to get at least a C in order for it be considered for graduation

I normally dont have a great GPA (2.7ish?), but I was doing so good this semester (4 out of 5 A’s half way through) and because of attendance policies for this semester’s classes and my car breaking down monthly I wont be getting those A’s I worked for. Holy run-on sentence. Anyways, I’m right there with you.

me me meee! I’m totally upset right now. I have a calculus exam tomorrow and our cumulative final is on Monday. A “c” is a 73 and right now I currently have a 75. It is a class required for my major, therefore, if I don’t do really well on these next 2 exams, I don’t “pass” the class. I am not good at math whatsoever and I HATE it that it’s all based on tests! I AM NOT a c student, let alone one who has to possibly re-take a class. I’m been the most stressed ever this past week. I finish next wednesday, and it can’t come soon enough. To top it off, next semester will be harder, thank God I am not in any math classes though. If I don’t make it through calc, it will be retaken in the summer. =( you’re not the only one.

D is for degreee!!!!!

If you don’t have any special plans after your degree then don’t even stress. Even if you do, there is always a way-lots of people have low points in life and grades and have becomoe extremely sucessfu in the academic world 🙂

I feel you. I’ve had a really difficult year and I feel like I’m going to fail all of my classes. The next week is make it or break it for me. I failed my first class ever last semester and felt horrible. I’m not planning to fail any more classes but if I do (omg) then I’m going to throw off my graduation schedule.

Hang in there and trust that it WILL be okay! It’s just a rough spot and you’re almost there!!!

Also, I had a nice GPA from a good school, and no employer gives a flying Fairy about it. A degree barely even gets you a job these days.

Eat that nutella girl! Stay strong!

@imalittlebirdie: Um yeah, on the subject of logic- My university offers logic in place of a math credit. I was like OH YEAH! I suck at math! I win lots of arguements with logic! I’m failing that class. Like hard. Like I’m not bothering to show up to the final, I’m failing that bad.

Ugh. Big hugs. Mine is going down to a 3.5 or less this semester (yeah, I know that SOUNDS high, at law school, that’s like almost in the bottom half of the class).

I blame many things, but mostly I blame having 4 classes, TAing, journal and the note…oh and the futile job search.

@Eva Peron: I agree. If you’re going to grad school, then, yeah, GPA matters, but once you get into the work force, GPA isn’t a big deal, especially after your first job. Don’t stress too much! Besides, like you said, you’ve made the dean’s list every year before this. One bad semester shouldn’t kill a good GPA.

I am going through the same thing this semester. Normally I am a good student, but there is a chance that I might fail one of my classes. The final in that class will determine whether or not I pass. But even if I do pass I will only be barely passing with a D. I am in my final year and feeling completely burnt out. I have had so much trouble with lack of motivation and concentration this semester that it’s ridiculous. If I wasn’t applying to grad school, I wouldn’t feel so freaked out about getting a D. However, in order to have the career I want, I have to go to grad school. Even though I am burnt out, I am actually pumped about next semester. I am ready to work hard to try to redeem myself.
