I'm attending De Anza College, and have a "B-" in one of my classes (GE class) currently. I have "A's" in the rest of my classes so far.
In my class (B- class), there is still 450 points, of 1000 possible to accumulate. 250 for the final (take home final, 1 week to complete), and 200 points for a group project (waiting to be graded). I'm about 10 points above the a C+, so I barely have a "B-".
I talked to a counselor today and found out that the policy is that if you get a "D" or "F", you can retake a class. Now, I'd be okay with a "B" in the class, but am worried I might fall into the "C" range.
I plan to transfer to a UC in a few years. Will it look bad if I get a "D" or "F" (purposely), and retake it and get an "A"?
