In short, I got a C and have to take a class again. I suppose was a combination of underpreparedness, pride, and just plain bad luck. I also think the class wasn't taught well but I guess I'm wrong since I'm the only person who didn't pass. The worst part is I thought I was doing fine. Anyway I saw the professor again today and he invited me to his office to talk about the class. Is there any point to this? I feel like it's just going to be him talking down to me and making me admit I'm not a good student or him patronizing me. If he really was concerned, why wouldn't he contact me during the semester when it was clear that I couldn't pass? Should I just ignore him? I've had enough embarrassment and self-esteem issues over my academic career and I really don't want to talk about this beyond with my advisors. Is there any way this can actually benefit me? I've already got the "message" that I should work harder and change my style of studying and balancing research.
