I failed second semester math (with the whole stay at home order situation and my already terrible performance in math, I was kind of expecting this) and I’m wondering if I should still email the admissions office of the university I committed to (Cal State LA. You’ve probably seen me on the UCI waitlist discussion board but I’ve decided to be realistic and keep my expectations for them low).
The terms for freshman admits to keep their admission is to satisfy my A-G requirements (done), graduate with a high school diploma (picked up my diploma today), and either finish with a GPA that is higher or the same as the GPA I applied with (3.0). This is my only worry since my transcripts haven’t updated yet, so I’m worried my GPA has dropped (I did a bunch of panic calculating and it shouldn’t have dropped below 3.0 based on those, but nothing’s set in stone).
Cal State LA has stated they will be flexible due to the impact of COVID-19, but I was wondering how to address this in an email to the admissions office since it’s better that I contact them first rather than have them point it out. What do I even say? “Hey, so I failed second semester Pre-Calc, please don’t rescind me I’m a good student I swear”? (sarcasm, but I’m genuinely confused because ya girl doesn’t know how to write proper emails for the life of me).
P.S. don’t grade shame me please, I already repented ?
