Ugh, horrid. 4 A's but Honors Calc ruined my 4.0 with an A-. Down to a 3.97 :'(. Mind you I've got to distract the adcoms as much as possible away from my chaos years at my other community college. Got out of there with a measly 2.67 gpa... Totally different major now, but still, I need all the upward trend I can get!
lol not trollin'... It's just that bubble that you get into when you've carried a perfect 4.0 for 2 semesters already and then get it popped by one stickler of a professor in the hardest class you've got with an stupid A-...
Anyway, I just hope the idea still gets across that I'm a new person and a vastly superior student now than I have been historically.
Perhaps you could discuss the grade with the professor and seek a change, if your very worried about it. Sometimes professors can be completely different people during office hours, and if the points were close enough, s/he may be a little forgiving.
I suppose I'm lucky, my cc does flat grades, not +/-'s.
Silver lining: At least it wasn't a B.
I'm applying! I have no idea what my chances are, though. I'll be 30 this spring and I have long breaks in my educational history. My cumulative GPA is 3.6, but if you only count the last 5 years, it's a 4.0. I have lots of work experience and varied interests, but no volunteer experience. I'm planning on registering as a premed if I get in. Do I have any hope?
