I’ve been taking classes at the local college–so far I have taken about one and a half semesters worth of classes, everything from Astronomy to Chemistry, and have gotten an A in every class.
Until this semester. I’m taking Organic Chemistry… and I’m getting a low B. If I weren’t convinced that my professor is curving the class extremely generously, I think I may actually be getting a B- or C+, and if my progress continues (as it most likely will), my previous 4.00 GPA at the college will be dragged down to a 3.8 or so. So my question is, will the fact that I’m doing poorly in such a difficult class, often called the toughest class a student will take, influence the decision of a college? Particularly since my high school courseload (I am a potential valedictorian) and the rest of my college courseload is, well, impeccable?
God, I ****ing hope not.
