Should I retake this class?

<p>Long story short, I took a heavy load last spring and failed an online communications class. I talked to a counselor about the F, and she told me that it was up to me on whether or not I wanted to retake it. The class counts towards elective credit, so it's not very important. </p>

<p>I plan on applying to SDSU and CSULB this fall, but I'm afraid that they'll reject me because of one F. I don't want to retake it because I already have a busy schedule and the school is only offering an online version of the class this fall.</p>

<p>Note: I failed COMM. 105 - Media Studies, not COMM. 101 </p>

<p>CURRENT GPA 3.4</p>

<p>Should I retake the class? :(( Will I be rejected if I don't? help!</p>

<p>Both SDSU and CSULB are very competitive for transfer students, especially if you are not in the local service area so it will definitely impact your chances. </p>

<p>Is this Communication class part of the Golden 4 needed for transfer? If so, you definitely need to retake but if not, I would still retake since the F vs a retake grade of B or higher will make a huge difference on your chances of getting an acceptance. </p>

<p>You should probably re-take the class but, I'd call or visit SDSU and ask.</p>
