Is this a pointless endeavor?

  1. Nov 30, 2009 #1
    Throughout community college I got good grades in my math and sciences classes. When it came time to take Physics 1 and 2 (Classical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism respectively) my job had me working insane amounts of overtime and I was only able to squeeze out Cs in both classes. Due to this I was unable to transfer to the 4yr college (Washington University in St Louis) that I wanted and instead transferred to University of Missouri - St Louis. I have one semester under my belt at UMSL, however I am unimpressed with the school. I am in a position where I don't have to work and devote my full attention to coursework and know I could land As in both Phy1 and 2 if I retook them at the community college. However, WASHU wants you to turn in your admission's app by April 15th (give or take a few days), but my semester doesn't end until May. Is it pointless to retake the classes since the transcript washu will receive won't have the new grades?
