Hey everyone. I'm in need of some help here. I'm currently a freshman pre-med student (bio major) at Umaryland. Unfortunately, my father passed away from cancer very recently and I've noticed a sharp decline in my grades/motivation/schoolwork ever since. Going from a 3.85 first semester to literally getting straight D's and F's on everything, I'm on the verge of calling it quits. I've talked plenty to my adviser but the only thing she suggests is that I possibly drop all my classes. I'm worried though that this will negatively impact me too greatly. Should I drop this semester? What should I do until I can find my footing again? Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm seriously in a depressed state right now. Thanks.
