    i am a grad student. i need your advise. i have a class that i might end up with an A-, worse
    B+. i still have a chance to get an A but it would mean acing the final with a 98%. the dilemna
    is if i go ahead and finish the class, but end up with an A-, my overall gpa will drop from a 3.94
    to 3.89 this quarter and it would take at least 16 units to pull it up to just 3.92 overall when i
    am graduating next quarter. (i am only doing 38 units for my graduate program.) if i don't
    continue with the class, i will get a 3.92 gpa by the end of this quarter considering A's in my
    other classes and finish with a 3.95 gpa overall next quarter. i really want to continue b/c i put
    alot of work in it but i feel that i should swallow my pride and look at the overall picture, which
    is the gpa. my undergrad gpa was not great, so that is why i need my grad gpa to be as high
    as possible. thanks.

    just incase this guy is for real...

    man, dont worry. just finish ur class. my gpa was not that great, but i got into some great schools. it's who you are that counts, not ur gpa. so ur gpa will be lower by 0.05. so what?? if you think like that, you'll never get into a school. good luck! :D

    3.89, 3.92, it all rounds to 3.9
    stick with the course. you've already gone this far. if you can pull yourself away from SDN (which i know i have great difficulty doing) study your booty off and get that A. A-/B+ isn't going to kill you either.
