If I got a B- in 1 Physics class my freshmen year, should I retake it. My GPA is above 3.8 BCPM, so I'm seriously considering not retaking it.

I've taken far harder classes, and Thermo will be a sinch now, so i'm not worried about not getting an A this time around.

Thanks in advance

Retake it since anything below 4.0 = rejection :smuggrin: jk. Just get a B+ or above on thermal

No, you should not retake it. Your GPA is fine; no one's going to look critically at a B- in freshman physics.

retaking will barely make your gpa go up, even if you get an A. do well in upper level courses, they probably won't even ask about it during interviews.
