My GPA overall is 3.85 but I'm doing really bad this semester with this calculus class. Ill probably get a C, which will be my first C ever. Is this really bad? I'll transfer to a state university next year and they will look at the courses that are related to my major only (engineering). And I've recalculated my GPA taking only science classes into account and it is now at 3.61 but if I don't drop this calc class, my GPA will be lowered to 3.54. Is this really bad for a pretty well known university in my state? I'm really worried. How important is GPA? Is it really a killer for admission? If I drop and retake next semester, I'd do better. The professor I'm taking with right now is horrible and I just couldn't stand it. Too unfortunate .. or would it be a good idea just to keep goin with this and when applying, could I explain why my grade isn't too good? Would they consider that? I don't know what to do.
