So I'm a sophomore in college, majoring in electrical/computer engineering (I'm an EE with some CS courses). Here's how my college career has looked so far: Freshmen (fall semester): Calculus 1 - 4 units, B Chemistry - 3 units, W Chemistry Lab - 1 unit, B English - 3 units, A Immigration History - 3 units, B Intro to Engineering - 3 units, B GPA: 3.15, 17 credits attempted, 14 complete. Freshmen (spring): Engineering Graphics and Design - 3 units, A- Ancient Civilization History - 3 units, B Calculus 2 - 4 units, W Philosophy - 3 units, C+ Physics (Mechanics) - 4 units, C+ GPA: 2.78, 17 credits attempted, 13 complete. Cumulative GPA: 2.97, 27 credits complete Freshmen/Sophomore (summer) Calculus 2 - 4 units, B+ Java Programming, 4 units, A+ Religion, 3 units, A Sadly the summer courses only credit transfers over, not grade points. First question: Would I attach the transcripts of the summer classes in addition to my university's official transcripts to my resume? (I took the summer classes at 3 different schools). Sophomore (fall) -- these are the grades I have right now Chemistry - 3 units, A Calculus 3 - 4 units, D+ Physics (Electricity + Magnetism) - 4 units, C Engineering Statics - 3 units, F Speech - 3 units, A This semester has been an extremely tough, rough, and overall horrible semester. I have never had grades like these in my life at mid-semester, so it's rough on me. However, I was sick and missed school for 2 weeks because of it. At this point in time, I don't think I could pull off a C in Engineering Statics and Calculus could go either way. I want to drop Engineering Statics for sure, but I'm not sure if I should keep or drop Calculus 3 as well. These two classes are not required to take the classes next semester; engineering statics is just required for me to graduate and not a pre-req for ANY class I have from spring semester until graduation. I'm thinking of making up Engineering Statics during senior year. If I do drop Calculus 3, I'm planning either to make it up next semester or over the summer. Which do you recommend? Or should I keep it? My spring semester schedule will look like this: Sophomore (spring): Differential Equations - 3 units Circuits - 3 units Logic Design - 3 units Java Programming 2 - 3 units Creative Art Class - 3 units If I take Calculus 3 next semester, it would replace the Creative Art Class. So here's a recap of the situation: I missed 2 weeks of class due to sickness Not sure if I can get a passing grade in a couple of classes Already talked to professors Dropping Engineering Statics, retaking senior year Might want to drop Calculus 3 and take spring semester or during summer. This semester was horrible, but I don't plan on dropping any more classes from here on out until graduation. Questions: How do these withdrawals affect me? Should I drop Calculus 3 and take it next semester or during summer? If I get As and Bs from spring semester until graduation, will companies overlook the withdrawals during my underclassmen years? I don't want to drop classes anymore because I don't want companies that look at my transcript to think I'm a quitter and unreliable/undedicated, but I don't want to lower my GPA anymore. I know I have a VERY rough start, but how is this going to affect me? Oh I ultimately would like to work for Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, Boeing; a military defense contractor. I originally wanted to be a part of AFROTC, but got DQ'd, so I would like to help the military out (please don't think of it as a political stance).
