Why did he tell you that you were going to get an A- and then you got a C+?? That seems kind of mean! Im sorry 🙁

@ILikePink: Have you not already applied? When I applied to grad school, I did so in the fall, so they did not get to see those fall grades.

Good luck!

Did you try contacting the TA/prof that said you were supposed to get an A-, maybe it’s an error?

Also, are you able to retake the class you got a D in?

How did a TA give you a D? Also, if you’re sure you were supposed to get a different grade by the first instructor, you should pull out your syllabus. There should be a grading policy, and it would be a matter of recalculating your assignments and exams, if you find that you earned above a 79% then contact the instructor and talk to him about a grade change.

Senioritis!!! Been there, done that.

Retake the class–it should replace your grade. I’d also ask for details as to why you went from an expected A- to a C+…maybe you bombed a final or maybe, just maybe, there was a calculating error somewhere. 

I don’t know if a D is passable for grad school if it’s a required class–it may really behoove you to retake it. If it’s not a required/major course, it probably isn’t as big of a deal. Depending on what you’re wanting to go to grad school for, a 3.2 should squeeze you by.

I had a few C’s in some (aka 2) 5-credit math classes and a C in organic and I’m pretty sure a C in analytical and still got into graduate school just fine =]

First off, i can totally relate. I was so over school during my senior year, but I finally gor through it. Some suggestions:

Go over your syllabus and calculate your grade yourself if you can, my BFF did this last semester when she got a B but thought she was sposed to get an A, and sure enough when she contacted the teacher about it, she did make a mistake and changed it. 

Also, a D is not a passable grade to get into grad school, so if you didn’t retake it then you are not going to be able to use that credit towards graduation.  In my undergrad, nothing below a C, not even a C-, was acceptable as passing.  Thankfully, the lowest I ever got was a B-. 

Good luck!

Yeah I was definitely ready for college to be over by Senior year. I actually really hated being in school and just wanted a full time job, I was sick of the social pressure to stay out every night until 3am, be at every event, etc. I LOVE being a real adult now and going by my own schedule and being able to say no to thing I actually don’t want to attend!
