I guess I'm just frustrated with the whole university system, but maybe someone will be willing to listen to my rant. I really botched the first two years in my undergrad. I had a family member pass away, was in a horrible relationship, and that on top of the transition to university was too much. I got a mosaic of grades from As all the way to an F. Anyways, since last summer I've gotten 8 As/A+s in a row, boosted my GPA up a lot, and I feel like I'm finally ready to move forward. So I emailed the Dean of my faculty to ask for permission to apply to a major program that requires candidates have no F's. Now I know with my one F (in a course that I retook recently and I got an A+ in) is a problem, but I feel like I've shown my ability. Anyways, lo and behold my request was shut down. This, on top of a biology prof who refuses to email me back (after 3 emails and numerous voicemails) about a incorrect calculation of my grade is really getting me down about whether or not anyone at university really has a heart. Oh well..
