    For my whole life it’s been my dream to get into UCF (university of central florida), but this grading period has not been the best in Algebra 2 for me. I didnt do well on a test which gave me a C in the class. 2 points away from a B. My teacher says I shouldn’t worry because I still do well in his class but I can’t stop crying. What about my GPA? What about being on honor roll every grading period? I’ve never gotten below a B, so this has actually broken my heart and I feel like my dreams are ruined. I’m in the schools National Honor Society, I have 150+ hours of community service and I‘m in 2 AP classes. I have worked all of highschool to get into this college and now my junior year I’ve received my first C. I am so terrified I‘ll never get in now. Has anyone gotten a C in highschool and still gotten into a good college? I know this seems silly but I‘m genuinely freaking out.

  • My college professor has me down as being absent for one day when I never missed a class.?

    Best answer: Your syllabus for the class would have the professor policies about missing class. I have never heard of. one absent affecting a students grade. Read your syllabus. I wouldn’t think this would be worth bothering your professor about.

  • I'm a middle-aged professor and some of my college students flirt with me. Is this just for the grade?

    I'm not especially good looking. I'm out of shape. I'm often 30 years older than they are and yet some of my college students flirt with me. Do they do this because they know I'm married and I'm not going to make any advance in return? Is it just for the grade? A joke? Practice? For real? How do... show more

  • Joining military/college?

    Best answer: I don't think it's a good way to go about it. Either:

    1. Look into an ROTC scholarship. These are very competitive but are easiest to get if you are enrolled in a science, engineering, or technology major (or nursing, for the Navy) (but not, typically, biology; only sciences that are actually useful to the military). You need to be at least 17 (with parental consent). If you are awarded a scholarship, the military pays for your college, room and board; you take about a minor's worth of classes in military science in addition to your major requirements. You have training a few mornings a week, and during the summers. After you complete the program and graduate, you have a four- to seven-year service obligation (depending on the branch of the military that's your scholarship is with).

    Most colleges have either a ROTC program on site, or an agreement with a nearby campus that hosts ROTC classes for several area schools.

    Of course, it's very late to be thinking about applying to four-year colleges now; most application deadlines for the fall term are January 1, but it depends on the state. The ROTC scholarship application deadline is February 4.

    2. Join the military when you graduate high school, but don't expect to be able to take very many classes while you're in service. It's a full-time job, remember, and a fairly strenuous one. Also, if you're pre-med, you won't be able to take any laboratory science classes on-line; your grades are of the highest importance, so your focus should not be divided between work and school; and you'll need a lot of hospital volunteer work, physician shadowing, and medical research work, which you (probably) won't be able to do in the military. Don't listen to the recruitment officers' promises; they're completely meaningless. Once you've signed up, the military will put you where it needs you, not where you've told them you want to be.

    Once you've served, you can get your college paid for according to the GI Bill.

    The military will not "reimburse" you for classes you've taken before you joined, although you can certainly use your paycheck to pay off your student loans.

    3. I'm assuming you're just going to community college for a year until you're old enough to join the military? If you are old enough when you graduate, just join.

    If not, don't graduate early, if you don't need to; you might be able to take some dual-enrollment classes for college credit during your senior year.

    Or, do any relatives live near a "better" community college, so you could live with them and go there? It might cost a little more, but there's little reason to pay to go to a community college that doesn't even have the classes you need.

    Or you could just work, live at home, and save your money until you're old enough to join.

  • Why do I study so hard in college but still not end up doing so well but other people barely study and end up doing really well?

    I just don't understand. I studied hours for my biology and anatomy exams in college and still don't do as well I wanted to while other students just breeze through and barely put in time to study and do really well in it. Is it just me or other people have this same problem too? I do attend class and listen to lectures but I just don't seem to perform too well on tests and that needs to change soon. I just want to know what are some ways to effectively study for tests now that I am in nursing school. I just can't let myself keep failing all the time in college. I need to step myself up as soon as possible. It seems as if I don't study, its an automatic fail on an exam for me.

  • Do some college students take all on-site classes on one day a week? Is this common?

    Best answer: No, not really. A class that meets only once a week is usually an evening class that meets for about 3 hours, or more - depending on the number of credits. You need four 3-credit hours to be a full-time student, and that means you would have to attend classes for 12 hours. That's impossible to do in one evening... show more
    Best answer: No, not really. A class that meets only once a week is usually an evening class that meets for about 3 hours, or more - depending on the number of credits. You need four 3-credit hours to be a full-time student, and that means you would have to attend classes for 12 hours. That's impossible to do in one evening session per week.

    However, it IS possible to find four classes that all meet on T-Th or M-W... at least early on in your academic career. As you progress, you will find fewer and fewer available classes that apply to your program. When this happens, you will find that you are arranging your work schedule around the class that is available, not arranging classes according to your work schedule.

    Find a job that is flexible.

  • Should I ask my professor for a grade change?

    I currently just completed my Intro C++ programming class. My class grade was comprised of 12 Labs, other small online exercises, a midterm, and final.

    I currently just completed my Intro C++ programming class. My class grade was comprised of 12 Labs, other small online exercises, a midterm, and final. At the beginning of the semester I mistakenly misheard what he said and I thought he said that all labs could be done anytime before the end of the semester. So since I am kind of lazy I waited and eventually the first two labs that were due closed and locked out after 6 weeks. After then I worked really hard and now at the end of the semester I am sitting at a 94 percent without counting those first two labs. But once he puts 0s just for those first two labs it would bring me all the way down to an 85 percent. I know for sure the first two were really easy and probably only took 10 minutes to complete both, so do you think it is worth it to try to contact my professor to not count those labs or something? As of right now my grade is not finalized. I learned a lot and worked really hard and i don't think bringing my grade down that low from those first two really easy labs reflect what I should actually earn.

    So I am applying for uni and have finished my personal statement. The course I want to do is criminology with law(I don’t care what anyone has to say about that ) anyway so on my personal statement I have wrote about criminology with the law aspect. I need to apply for other universities near me but Can only pply for criminology as they don’t offer criminology with law in most places, so if I apply for the other universities (not my first choice )would they consider me or not bother looking at it because on my personal statement I have wrote I want to study criminology with law. I don’t want to change my personal statement by not using law on it because it could reduce the.chances of getting in . Do you think I should take the law parts out but then it may mean that I won’t get accepted on my first offer.
