Transferring to UMich (am I screwed?)
I'm currently a freshman at Eastern Michigan, but I hope to transfer to UM for my junior year. I'm a little worried, however, because I'm currently taking chem and bio which I hate. I've had personal problems for the past few weeks which have really affected my attendance, and on top of my disinterest I don't think I'll be able to pull off more than C's in those classes. The two account for 9 credit hours, so they're really going to affect my GPA even when I have up to 70 credits when it's time to transfer.
-Flip the switch and finish with the best possible grades I can at this point then start taking classes that will go toward my anticipated major (computer engineering) and hope UMich sees this as something good (I could even write about it in an essay).
-In the event I get C-'s or better: retake the classes in the summer, have both grades on my transcript but only the lower grade calculated into my GPA.
-In the event I get D+'s or lower: retake the classes in the summer, have both grades on my transcript and have both grades calculated into my GPA.
-I want to know what I should do to give me the best possible chance. Do they consider community service as well, or is that only for incoming freshmen?
-I know UM won't transfer all of my credits, but do they calculate my GPA based on ALL of my credits or just the ones they take?
I hope this was an easy read, thank you!
