    I hear ya. I've got a 4.0 now. I made an A in Calc 1 and Chem 1 this semester. I feel confident about an A in Calc 2, borderline in Chem 2, and I don't know in Intro Phys 1. Until last year I was a working adult, then I lost my job. I figured why not get in school. I'm not your average college kid. I'm 30 with a decade of real world work/management experience with a work ethic to match. My spouse and I have decided to let me focus only on school so that I can get out sooner as well as really do well while I'm here. If it's hard work that it will take, I've got it. :)

    I really hate taking summer courses at my university, but it really helps if you want to get ahead and graduate on time. Most of the time, the department just grabs some guy who has no experience in teaching. I would just do an internship in the summer. just my 2 cents

    You're right, it's a totally different ballgame when you go to school as a "real" adult. I went straight through, but DH went back to school for engineering when he was 28. He had so much more focus and drive than I did! That's great that your spouse is so supportive!

    @ zer0c123

    Fortunately for calc 2 I was able to get the same professor for summer that I had this semester for calc 1, which is wonderful because he is great. He's tuff but I learned so much and did very well. As for my sciences (chem2 and phys1), I asked around and was able to get professors in both classes that come highly recommended. They speak clear english and everything;)
