    I just finished my sophomore year at a school I thought I was lucky to get in. I haven't been doing very well, at all. Last week I was doing a research project for a learning class and realized freshmen studied 4 times as much I did, if not more, to get the same or lower grades than I did (surveys). I guess I didn't put enough time in, how much can great grades my last two years benefit me? Should I just quit now? I'm also a bit worried because some people studied a lot less than I did and got great grades.

    The only person you should be comparing yourself to is you. There will always be great and lesser people than yourself.

    Seek out your school's learning or education center for help.

    I trust that you will think it's a useful response.

    Oh certainly! Anything that helps people understand themselves/their learning processes better is useful! Using the educational center for educational struggles should be like going to the mental health office for personal issues.
    Just commenting on how common it is for people to bypass that step before going meltdown-mode.

    I know, I'm just starting to freak out a little bit. Can't believe I got bad grades when I could have done much better.
