Hi, first time poster but have been reading the forums a while, like the title says I'm looking for some direction in unversity. I'm technically a junior right now, entered uni as a Comp Sci major, things went ok in Freshman Year passed Programming I, Algebra, Trig (probably all the easy bull**** classes for some of you), but come sophmore year I got a D in Calc I, dropped it that next winter semester, did General Chem in that summer and passed, got a C- the next winter semester I took Calc I in, passed with a C that next summer semester, then got a D in Calc II and this fall semester I had to drop Calc II again, I had a similar experience with Discrete math (basically dropped it each time I took it), oh and just to put some icing on the cake I got a D in physics with Cal I lecture this semester. My biggest problem in my sophmore year I suppose was getting a girlfriend and getting lazy on the hard stuff and when I would get stuck I would often take 'breaks' and when I would get to the test I would freeze, I would also use things like the gym or whatever else I could as an escape of sorts and sometimes would only do the bare minimum problems without understanding how they were done. Thing is my then girlfriend was the complete opposite, she was a neuroscience major and was still able to get A's and B's while hanging out with my practicically every day for hours but my grades just plumeted, I had about a 3.0 in freshman year and now I have a 2.2 (might be a 2.3-2.4 now that passed a bio class and the physics lecture just fine). Like I said I've been reading some posts here and looking back in relation to how some of you study it seems that I don't do enough and so I'm going to make a more consciousness effort to study longer and more frequently throughout the week. A question I had is that I'm intending to take Calc II and Physic I next semester together with Discrete Math, would this be too much for me to get good study time on, I read an article that said given my situation I should wait till I pass Calc II to do Physics I if I didn't get at least a B in Calc I. I'm sorry this is turing into such a long post but I'm also having trouble with my major, see I always had a layman's interest in physics and after reading more on the subject and it's applications I was interested in getting a major in it at the end of freshman year but the past 2 years have been so bad I'm just not sure what I should do. Another option I've been thinking about is that I enjoyed programming and I was pretty good at biology so I was thinking of going for a career in bioinformatics (the applications of that field seem very interesting as well), but I was also interested in applied physics, but whenever I look at my grades I think either way is getting more and more out of my grasp, I want to finish college as quickly as possible and be able to enter graduate school sometime before I'm 25 (I'm 21 now),. Again sorry for the very long read, but I guess I just had alot of stuff I wanted to get off my chest, any and all help any of you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
