    Since many of us are in our Senior year in college I was wondering how we are all doing.

    Alright, alright I'll include them on my next poll guys thanks for the suggestions
     
  7. we all know what a passing grade, it's the lowest grade you can get before you fail. i hope that everyone who's claimed that is actually borderline failing because if you're not you're messing up the poll. nobody here is borderline failing!! please people. let's keep these polls pure and honest.

    and by average grades, do you mean a C or average for the average premed student (successful/ unsuccessful), or the average for the typical college student (i think it's better than C).

    the reason i'm posting this is because we are not being very careful with these posts. the data is thus very misleading. so then what's the point? let's all try to be more precise with our questions. this isn't law, but let's try to keep things as precise as possible without going overboard.

    for the record i did not post because i refuse to give people the wrong impression..and that's what i'd be doing if i used this poll the way it's worded now.

    To clarify:
    GRade to graduate= lowest grade to graduate
    Average grade is= grade for typical student (B)
    on top of things= the highest grade you usually achieve.

    Well, I have to get at least a C in each of my classes (required for my major) to graduate. Therefore, since I have a D in one, I am failing. Clear? :)

    AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! Sorry, freaking out a bit here.

    Yeah, it is a nice feeling to just be able to (sort of) relax and enjoy my classes for the sake of learning (instead of being so focused on "must get an A".) Granted, I don't want to totally blow my GPA, but a few A-s and Bs are well worth being able to relax and just enjoy going to school vs. stressing constantly.
