    i think i might get a C+ in a bio course...and even if i ace the final it'll be C+ most likely...i'm scared
    and i was fortunate enough to be given a seat at UoP...but they said B or better. I was wondering if that applied to the next 2nd semester or both the current semester and next. :/
    haha thanks

    Doh!! You better get on your knees!!


    If you took that as praying to God, then God bless you.

    If you took that as the "other" way to get a better grade on your knees...then shame on you!!! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    "B or better" seems a little harsh for make-or-break ultimatums...I mean **** happens, ya know?

    As far as I know UoP has the most strict rule in this regard.

    I would talk to the Professor. See if there is anything you can do in your power to change that C+. Also shame on you too, knowing you were going to dental school and needed to keep your grades up! If your Professor won't help you, talk to UoP BEFORE they see the grade themselves.

    dont worry, make sure you get a high score on the DAT on Bio and say you were slacking, or it was a tough time for you... blah blah... a comeback story is welcomed...worst case do a masters later.

    Best advice....talk to UOP so you can get a straight and accurate answer.

    Good luck to you!

    With a 26 in bio you can pretty much make anything up and I'm pretty sure they will let you slide (not telling you to lie, but if ya did, I'd believe you!:laugh:)

    You were sick on the day of a test and the professor refused to give you a makeup. That dropped your grade. Say what you want just keep it convincing. This is your life we are talking about. Dont get all ethical now, do whatever you have to to kep your seat at UoP.

    He is afraid of the worst case and I was putting it in perspective, if you all think it is not possible, then what is the panicking all about. Tell them you were busy doing research and forgot some deadlines and the intial professor was ok with that, but then they changee the professor, after the first one died eating apple pie... If you are going to lie, LIE BIG...

    pass me the bottle jessie... glup glup glup

    a friend of mine at dent school said this "b or better" only applies to second semester and not this semester. so i'm just hoping that he's right but i think i'm gonna give the dent school a call tomorrow
