I didn't do very well in a couple of courses mainly due to some 'personal reasons' last year and i was determined to do better because if i had not run into those problems then i would've done much better. In any case my transcript is going to show that i took the course twice but it is going to No credit retained (NCR) for the course i took the first time. It will show the second (and much better) grade, however. Now i want to apply to graduate school (I may not be smart repeating courses but say what you must... i will do it). I want to know if graduate admissions will look badly at the fact that i took the course twice? thanks for your advice and input!
