Ok so I applied Cal Poly SLO for fall 2020 but my schedule this semester at the CC has been a train wreck. Basically I wasn’t able to take the intro Communications Class because of schedules conflict. So I cannot complete the golden 4. My only option is an oral interpretation class with a very difficult professor. I’m an introvert and this class has me having to act like a drama student. The professor is also very strict and I heard rarely gives out A’s.
This is a problem because I am taking Physics 3 which is thermodynamics and quantum physics. This class looks very hard and I might get a C. I also applied to UC’s that I’m pretty sure I’ll get into some of and they have a requirement that I must maintain a final semester GPA of a 3.0 or higher or lose my acceptance. So if I take both these classes and get a C in physics and a B in coms then I will fail to meet the requirements for the UC.
My question is, Should I drop the Communications class and my chances of getting into Cal Poly in favor of taking easy A classes that will offset my potential C in physics to maintain a 3.0 overall? This way I will at least get into a UC. My GPA is a 3.6 overall so I’m not sure if my chances of getting into Cal Poly SLO are even good enough in the first place to warrant taking that Communications class.
