What do I do now?

<p>Hey everyone,</p>

<p>I recently finished up my second semester in Grad school toward getting my MLIS degree. Unfortunately, I didn't do so well and I just received the letter notifying me that I was dismissed from my program. Needless to say, I'm devastated. I worked really hard this past year, but I was working full time and it just overwhelmed me, so I didn't get the necessary grades. I want nothing else right now than to finish up my degree. I recently got an internship in my field and I was quitting my full time job to concentrate on my schooling. Now I don't know what to do. Is there any chance I could get re-admitted? Would I have to apply again and get accepted again? What are my chances of getting accepted again if I already failed once?</p>

<p>Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>I would take at least a semester off. You're going to need to petition or appeal for readmission, and you will need to explain how your effort and performance will change sufficiently to merit another chance.</p>

<p>Talk to the program director. Find out what your options are. It won't be easy, given your current emotions, but you'll need to do it if you want a chance to continue in the future.</p>
