Straight F's (for real)

<p>Not a troll thread, I promise to god.</p>

<p>I'm a senior, off to Ohio State next year! Well, maybe, if I don't get rescinded.</p>

<p>My school has trimesters and this final trimester of Senior year I've been showing up to school, sitting through class, and going home and not doing anything. I've flunked almost every test and turned in ONE homework assignment. I've opted out of 2 physics labs strictly because I didn't feel like doing them. I'm not a bad kid at all and I DO generally participate in class, but my effort just isn't there.</p>

<p>Currently, at mid-trimester, my grades are:</p>

<p>Honors Precalc (39%, F)</p>

<p>AP Stats (54%, F)</p>

<p>AP English (11%, F)</p>

<p>AP Gov (58%, F)</p>

<p>AP Physics B (44.5%, F)</p>

<p>AP Spanish (0%, F) (we only have one thing in the gradebook which I missed)</p>

<p>Concert Choir (71%, C-)</p>

<p>..If I can't drastically improve this, is there going to be ANY way for me to explain this to an admissions office and have them not rescind me? Do they ever take into account that senior just get lazy? Because there is no excuse. I'm being a true slacker.</p>

<p>Any advice greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>Ummm. There is absolutely no excuse. Yeah, seniors get lazy...but they don't get straight Fs. I hope you can pull up your grades, or you will get your acceptance rescinded.</p>

<p>Uh, you have like 1 month left to get these grades up. And since most of them are AP classes, I doubt you will be doing much in them after the AP test, so, bluntly speaking, you are screwed beyond saving. There is no doubt in my mind that unless you bring up your GPA to around 3.0 that you will get rescinded. OSU isnt a bad school and they sure dont accept any slackers. </p>

<p>Man oh man. I thought my friend was in trouble with his 3 Ds and 3 Cs, but you are really in dire straits. I apologize that Im speaking so harsh but it is the sad reality. </p>

<p>Senioritis is an unacceptable excuse. Period. No college will consider it.</p>

<p>There's not much to say...Sorry. You really should have been keeping up with your school work.</p>

<p>AP exams are in a week sir. The work will be OVER after that.</p>

<p>I hate to say it but you're royally screwed. </p>

<p>If you can try to get anything to a C or even a D that might help, but I'm not gonna be overly optimistic here..</p>

<p>You're screwed.</p>

<p>umm...all i can say is try to get them up to C's before the end of the year...but i'm pretty sure colleges rescind their offers of admission if you get anything below a C on a final transcript...</p>

<p>good luck though.</p>

<p>I suggest you find a good junior college for next year if you don't start putting some work in.</p>

<p>Talk to the teachers. Be sincere. Maybe they'll understand and help you out. Maybe ask if you can turn in the late assignments for at least some credit and stuff. That'll help your grade at least a little and then work hard for the rest of the year. Good luck.</p>

<p>NORMAL colleges like Ohio State won't rescind someone for a D or two, especially in AP Classes. But this is a completely different story.</p>

<p>This is frankly ridiculous. Work bloody hard every minute of the day to try and get your grades up. talk to your teachers and try to find some way to work this out. I have no idea what you were thinking and you probably deserve being rescinded. And I think you definitely will be rescinded.</p>

<p>Yay for kitties</p>

<p>When did it actually occur to you that you're getting an F in every class? Just one should be a wake-up call!</p>

<p>Please don't continue to be a jerk and sit back and do nothing with yourself. Tsk! Guys are not doing their work and flunking out of colleges big time. Do not do this to yourself! You have an opportunity for some type of future at Ohio State, but it takes work. That's right. You can't move forward by doing nothing. Decide you actually want school. Decide it is worth something to have a HS diploma, a college diploma, a goal. Decide now, but don't waste your time and money in college.</p>

<p>I think you need counseling and need it now. Please talk to someone, at your school, at your church, a relative or whatever. It takes effort to fall this far behind.</p>

<p>@Cody2010, sorry, i just put that from personal experience. i was misinformed.</p>

<p>Get a note from a psychiatrist?</p>

<p>Run to your parents and tell them what is going on. Now.
You need to have a conference with each teacher to make a plan to save yourself in the next four weeks.
Can you still drop a class or two? Maybe that would make this more manageable.</p>

<p>In addition to what everyone else has said, you need to do some serious soul-searching (with professional help if you think you need it) and figure out WHY you're having this problem. It is simply not normal to drop to straight Fs that quickly, and that kind of thing will hurt you even more once you leave high school.</p>

<p>Why on earth did you post this on CC of all places?</p>

<p>My high school counselor and I called OSU today and they said to focus on graduating and that I should not be overly concerned about flunking classes that are not required for graduation, which only English is. And I'll pass it.</p>

<p>Am I safe?</p>

<p>Yes, if they said it was okay (which they did) and assuming you pass English! You have an 11%? I don't mean to sound like a Debbie Downer but are you sure you could pull it off?
What did your English teacher say?</p>
