Internal Transfer into CALS
So I have just finished my freshman year at College of Engineering at Cornell and my grades are absolutely miserable. Although I did better overall in my classes, pulling my grades up from Cs to Bs, I absolutely tanked multivariable calc. I simply did not understand it, and I got the tutors, attended extra help classes, and went to office hours. I've already applied to internally transfer into the Biology and Society major at CALS. I articulated in my essay how engineering was a poor fit for me and I believe that the Biology and Society major will be a better fit for me and my plans of being a pre-med. However, I'm very nervous that my grade in multivariable calc (which was a D!!!!) will severely impact my chances of transferring. Does anyone know how lenient CALS is and if I have any chance of transferring?
