Ok so hear is the deal. I applyed to transfer to the University of Florida for Spring 2014 a month ago. By the end of fall 2013 i will have my 60 credits. I have a 3.3-3.4GPA (Not 100% sure) and a 4.0 GPA in my major-related courses (criminology). I am currently taking 15 credit hours (5 classes) at a community college.
One of the classes, AMH 2020 (American History 1865-P) I am failing. I did not put my best effort at all into this course, but it is very difficult. Not because I cannot understand, but because the professor lectures on nothing related to the test, the book doesn't help, and I have a low F I believe. We will have a 6-page book report on a book idk A thing about or want to know about, the final, and a test. If i get a 75 or better on all 3 and get full "participation"( yes he takes attendance and daily mini quizzes, which I wont get full credit for) then I will have around a 61-63%. It would help a ton if I could focus on my other classes (2 major related) and I feel as if there is no hope left for this class. I feel that even if I put a TON of work into it, i might not even still pass and it would be a complete waste, and that I am better off just not showing up anymore.
I am past the drop date so that is not an option. Anyway, how bad exactly would 1 F on my transcript affect me? I wont ever get another and technically, UF would not no about it now(if i were to get accepted).
Thanks for the advice in advance. If I dont get accepted to transfer to UF, i wont be crushed as I am fine with going to USF or maybe even UCF.
