TDLR: I'm part-time, my GPA was good prior, 3.0 ish overall, I WF one class and D in another my TERM GPA is 0.57, and I'm trying to APPEAL my dismissal.
So this really sucks to post but I'm being academically dismissed from uncw. I took 2 classes this term and took a WF in one because I was too anxious to show up to class because I was sick in the 4th or 5th (I literally developed shingles from stress) and was nervous the arrogant professor would say something. Me being sick also didn't impede on my learning since the material could be done at home and didnt require an in person exam. So it wasn't detrimental. I missed the cutoff when I thought I could last-minute make up for the 5 quizzes and 1 test I missed.
I knew I'd take a hit but I planned already on making it up for the summer term.
I'm technically a senior but I have about 6 more semesters to go (I transferred with a ton of credits from a CC in another state and even though 30 credits are useless electives I'm stuck with them) I'm a stat major with a math minor and I have a while before I'm good to graduate but I have a solid plan for every semester.
I transferred last year and did well these past 2 semesters prior but failed CHM 102 because I was confident and didnt study enough. I retook it this semester but same deal was anxious and I ended up with a D in the class. It's whatever my GPA was strong before I can pull it back up.
Problem is, with a WF and a D, my term GPA is a 0.57 BUT my overall is still a 2.25.
Within those parameters I am allowed to appeal the dismissal to a committee and theyll decide if I'm let back in on probation, sit out a term, or sign some academic contract about going to SI or tutors and office hours with professors.
I talked to someone in the college and she said I had a really good chance of being readmitted if I just explain why I had such a hard time.
Btw my first semester I had a 2.1 because of that first CHM 102 fail, and the last one I had a 3.2. I transferred in with 64 credits at about 3.2-3
Since I only took 2 classes will it look better than having failed 4 or 5? My reason for doing so badly isn't some death in the family or accident or financial burden.
I was just anxious but never sought therapy, I had a tutor for like a week but bailed because I felt stupid, I got lazy, I work 20 hrs a week but could definitely study on the job since I work at another school in the area. So it's all my fault.
I desperately need them to re-admit me and allow me to take a summer semester since I have 2 bottle-neck courses for my major to complete so I can get momentum.
Do I have a good chance of making it back in? Has anyone else been term-dismissed and pleaded a successful case?
I'm required to write a brief letter but I don't know If they'll empathize if I have no solid reason for being such a loser.
