I’m currently a student at Miami University in Ohio. My parents talked me into going to this school because it was close to home and affordable however I fell in love with Mississippi State University when I was a senior in high school.
Anyways, this first semester at Miami was awful. I didn’t like the classes I was taking and I was struggling with a lot of mental health issues that have since been nearly resolved and I’m doing a lot better.
For my first semester I failed both my classes. It’s terrible because now I’m afraid I won’t get into my dream school in Mississippi. At my current school, you’re allowed to repeat a class and the newest grade will replace the older one but the F would still stay on my transcript but wouldn’t be factored into my GPA.
I guess my question is, if I do really well in all my other winter term and spring semester classes and get at least a 3.0 what are my chances of getting into Mississipp State or any other college even though I would have 2 F’s on my transcript? My high school GPA was about a 3.5 and I got a 27 on my ACT. I just really want to transfer mainly because the school that I’m at now doesn’t have my program that I want. Any advice will be appreciated thanks!
