maybe somebody was in a similar situation who can relate and advise. i graduated 2000 BS in bio. i brought out my records and went over them. college > transferred > state university. college was not a problem, took science, good grades. first year state was not a problem, took science, good grades. the following years i f*cked up. i mean really bombed. it was like i couldn't get out of black hole if i tried. an example of craziness, i did poorly in organic chem I, but did well in II and III. weird huh? i also did well in physical chem and calculus. in evaluating my records, it seems chemistry and math were my strong suits and bio and physics were my weak points. the reason i think that was the case was because i took general chem and math (pre-cal/calculus) in college and when i came to the state university they made me take general chem and calculus (for biologist) for the bio major, the same/similar college courses didn't transfer. as a result, i did well in organic and physical chem also and state calculus. in addition to general bio and physics, i bombed on upper science courses such as cell bio, genetics, and micro. i dunno, i think i am capable of doing well in those science couses where i failed, something just went wrong after the first year at state. then i struggled just to graduate. i hope somewhat can relate and share their insights to their own situation. thanks. if i could do it all over again, i should have left school, and then come back.
