Within the next year, I'm transferring from the local community college to the state university to complete my BS in chemical engineering. Right now I have about 3.5 gpa in my lower division courses (math, chem, physics, intro engineering, etc). Obviously, I'm going to work as hard as I can to maintain or even improve that average. But, realistically, I know that the university courses are going to be harder. Has anyone experienced this situation before? Did your gpa drop considerably?
