I really need some advice. D is a sophomore at Top 20 Private school. Last year was a difficult adjustment, but she wound up doing well. She's premed and is failing chemistry - now she thinks her dreams of being a doctor are over and wants to give up completely. (The weeder science classes are graded on a curve that ensures that a certain percentage will fail). She's also miserable at this school for other reasons which I won't go into here.
She's talked about transferring and I wonder if I should encourage her to do that - there are schools she's interested in that take transfers for spring semester, but she would have to move quickly - or should I encourage her to stick it out for this year and look into transferring next year? Thanks...
This was her dream school and it's turned out to be a nightmare.
