    Yes...during one of my interviews, my interviewer who was a M4 told me that she failed a course in undergrad. One bad grade isn't going to kill your chances...retake the course, do well the second time around, and you should be fine.

    Lot's of people have. Getting a great GPA is important, but overcoming a lousy grade or two is not impossible in the course of an entire college career. Now if the F was in a science course that was worth 20hrs. :rolleyes: that could be tough.

    Yay, so there is some chance!! Thanks for your replies everyone. I'd hate to think that a future could be determined solely on some stupid random course. Thanks for your input!

    BTW, what's an M4?
