<p>I'm a transfer student at my local u. Last semester, I attended Miami U and took the first in their Intro Bio sequences and got a C (Ugh). When I transferred this semester to the institution I'm at currently, the credits transferred as a "natural science elective" not Bio 202 -- which is what I was told by an advisor it would transfer as. </p>
<p>I can either meet with my advisor and see if there's anything that could be done to get it as the course it should be or I can retake it. I'm positive if I retook it, I'd get better than a C (which was caused by my own laziness and hating being at Miami + three different professors for the class and their three different teaching styles when only one wrote the test). But retaking it would hold me back a semester. Not to mention, I really, really hated that class the first time I took it. There's essentially no way possible to make learning about the reproduction cycles of plants interesting. Like, at all. It's basically a lot of botany and the last bit was basically us being shown a picture of an organism and having to identify it's kingdom, family, class, etc. on the fly.</p>
<p>By the way, I'm a bio major and I would like to go to grad school for immunology. </p>
<p>Also, is it bad that I can only point a few things out that I've liked so far in my intro bio classes? For instance, I loved learning about viruses and micro/macromolecules and Darwinism/evolution so far but a lot of the other stuff (botany, for one) seemed like torture. I have a good amount of lab experience in biochemistry and pharmacology labs and I love that but the rest...
Will this get better in the upper level classes when the focus of things won't be as broad?</p>
