    was put on academic probation my junior year...
    dropped out...
    transfered... graduated with a 3.8...
    currently at 3.8 in grad school...
    bong bong... it can be done...

    That shit is pretty much impossible. I'm in my junior year and my GPA is 3.6 and I want to graduate with a 3.8 but it seems like it's impossible and I would need to 4.0 every class from here on out.

    I graduated with 2.4. But hey, I graduated. If you want to go to grad school you'll have to get your grades up. As for me, I'm done with school & done taking out loans for that.

    In the real world, no one gives a shit. And no, a grad degree isn't necessary in every field.

    Are you partying too hard or just struggling? Both happened to me. I cut back on the partying only Friday, Sat. and studied Sun-Thurs. I struggled a lot with classes I chose and decided to pick classes I was more interested in. You may even want to change your major if it's too much.

    I agree. I realized that college today is now just another money grab in order to get you in rediculous debt to get an 60,000 (if you're lucky) job. I'm done with school.

    Graduated HS in 2006. Took a few city college classes but, I generally still didn't get a fuck about school.

    In 2009, the Recession hit my pockets HARD. Went from working two jobs and stuntin to looking bummy. Moms was bitching at me to make something of myself. That experience made me want to get my sh*t together. Transferred to a small HBCU that summer. Got straight A's my freshman year.

    Transferred to a top school the next year and they gave me a scholarship.

    I was in my don't give a F mode and stopped going to several classes without withdrawing from them and just got F's for nothing, other than not caring. Still graduated, and never got kicked out. Failed art because I did not go to class not even to take tests and did not even bother to withdraw before the drop day. Yes, I went through quite a ignorant and careless stage but still graduated without ever getting kicked out, put on probation, or having to leave for a semester. College really is a test of will and endurance as someone else suggested.

    1.7 got the studying more made it to 2.4.....its better than 1.0..or below...we all smart...just focus more...if put more reading and studying you can master it
    I thought college was hard, its takes time, with all the pressure, ask many questions towards the teachers....get a group study involve. Start some fun study games is another reason why students get 3.0 or higher in there g.p.a!

    I'm starting with a 2.2 but I can easily break a 3.0+ if I actually try.

    I graduated high school with a really shitty one. something like 2.3 just finished my first semester of college before the holidays with a 3.3 and that was barely passing a music appreciation class, the easiest of all my classes lmao

    but does the course your redoing count as additional credits?

    If you've already received credits for the course (completed it fully and passed) then you will not receive additional credits.

    lol, if you did everyone would just keep redoing the same course. After second year you'd be gettin 100% on everything.

    That is how my school is...
