Shoulda had a fucking A in stats, an A in Physics Lab, and a B in Orgo. I slacked off. I think I should forget about dental school.

No way to preserve tabs and spaces?

Well, not certain about the final grades on three of them yet, but I know I was pulling A's going into my finals. I know one grade so far and it was an A. I believe I will have ended with a 4.0, A's in Latin 111, History 101, Politics 110 and Biology 175.

3.8 GPA: A, A, and B (in organic chem)

But I did complete 36 units last year. And WTF is with these +/- marks? We don't get those, its a straight grade, period.

Next semester, 16 more units. Biology, Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, and an art class to relax in.

my college in its infinite wisdom decided to move to a +/- system. oddly enough, it only hurts good students (an A- and A+ do not balance out but a B-/B+ or C-/C+ do) but does just fine for everyone else.

Last course in intro calc: Did alright during class got raped on the final hoping for 2.8-3.1
Physics electromagnetics: 3.4-3.6
Asian American studies : 4.0 whooping some grad students while I'm at it too. Never taking this professor again though; good teacher but ungodlike amount of work. I wrote a 32 page midterm; 22 page final/midterm 2 and a final paper.

Last class took a toll on the rest of my classes.

I did one semester while hanging out on ATOT back in 2000, it was my worst semester ever.

of course, I also played quite a bit of Unreal Tournament back then

I don't hang out that much on AT. It's a lot higher in the past 2 weeks because school was coming to an end. I work about 20-25 hours between 2 jobs just fine though.

My classes were super easy this semester, which helped. 16 hours next semester, but I should be fine.

Don't let anybody bust your balls.
I work full-time have a wife and three kids and have a 3.5
I will admit that my psych program is easier than an engineering program but I also think I'm a LOT more focused than many of the kids I'm in classes with. I think adult students have more drive than many standard college kids.

General Physics: A
Developmental Psychology: A-
Plant Biology: A-
Biochemistry: B- (pending a regrade)

Was a fairly light quarter. Most of the classes were pretty easy other than biochem that sniped me on the final. Had a B+ up until then.

Definitely. With full effort I'd have a 4.0, but no reason really to push that hard. I will have to push that hard when I transfer to be competitive in the ROTC program, but I'll worry about that when the time comes.

I have perfected the art of doing the bare minimum to get an A. I don't have excess resources. Doing more than enough would be counter-productive.
Good luck, enjoy the break.

I had a decent course-load this semester. I'm expecting A's in German, Philosophy, and Organic Lab, and a B in Physics.

As for Biochem, I need a C or higher, and after taking today's combined Midterm and Final, I'm not so certain about obtaining that. I've never had to face the possibility of retaking a class, so it's a bittersweet end of the semester to say the least.

Keep in mind that people with higher grades will be more inclined to share.
