I really don't get why some people freak out. IT IS ONLY YOUR FIRST SEMESTER! 3.2 - 3.4 is not bad for the adjustment from highschool to college. One of my friends who happened to be a roommate of mine in college was almost a 4.0 in Highschool and scored something like a 1450+ on the old SAT's, and got a 3.1 his first semester. He is now a pharmacist. So just keep your head up! I know you have standards but I promise you it will get easier because you know what to expect now and you seem passionate about not getting anything below a 3.4. Hope it goes well.You're complaning about a 3.2?
You have nothing to worry about. People (myself included) get accepted with below-average GPA's - that's why it's an average.
I graduated 9th in my class in high school (out of a class of 430) and went to college and became average. It happens. As someone else said, there are higher standards now. If you want straight A's in college you're going to have to work much harder than you did in high school. Seriously, this is not a "horrible" semester at all - plenty of people started college this year and got C averages. You have to put it into perspective... I was a little upset with my grades this semester but there are people struggling to stay in the program. There will always be people much worse off than you. Be happy about your grades!
