So they finally posted the last of my final grades. They are:
- Cultural Anthropology: A
- Public Speaking: A
- Spanish: B
- Intermediate Algebra: B
My GPA for the semester is a 3.462. This annoys me. Why? Because that means I’m .04 away from Dean’s List. I made Dean’s List last semester, and I was hoping to keep the streak up. Would’ve been fine if I had gotten the A in Math that I was expecting. It’s kind of my own fault, I forgot a few homework assignments in Math so I only got 80% credit for them instead of 100%. It’s just painful to be THAT CLOSE.
People tell me I should be happy with my grades, but in all honesty, if it’s not my best work, I’m not happy. This semester was not the best that I’m capable of, because I wasn’t as organized as last semester. I also have my past to contend with. When I try to transfer to University, they’ll look at my grades from 20 years ago, and my poor completion ratio, and judge me based on that. I want my current grades to PROVE to them that I’m capable of getting the work done. I don’t want there to be any question that they want me as a student in their school. Dean’s List consistently in my permanent record would give me that added “oomph” when admission time comes – and it’s coming really soon, since this’ll be my last two semesters in my AA.
Anyways, that’s all for now, sorry about the little mini-rant. Hope you all have a pleasant day!
