A disastrous 1st quarter
Hey everyone, I've been a forum lurker for quite some time and have decided to come out of the darkness.
I have concern regarding my chances of getting into grad school if I decide to go that route. I basically flunked out of my first quarter of college back in 2004 and ended up with an F and a couple of incompletes due to laziness and inability to adapt to the change. I took the next quarter off and came back strong the quarter after at a local community college and have been doing well ever since. I plan on going back to my original school to finish up my Mechanical Engineering degree in near future.
My question is, will that 1st quarter of F/incompletes hurt my chances of getting into grad school? I estimate I will graduate between a 2.9-3.3 GPA.

Yes, it will hurt. Comparing you to someone who got straight A's in that quarter instead, that person will be at an advantage. Will it hurt a lot? Probably not.
I think your bigger problem is your overall GPA. Below 3.5 is not very good. Below 3.0 is bad.
