Not on academic probation = hooray!

  1. Aug 11, 2008 #1
    i was admitted into a university on probation due to my low gpa (i did really bad in classes my freshman year.). i finished my summer semester with 2 classes, and ended up with a 3.0 gpa. i haven't seen that in awhile. i have another chance, and i have really been improving in school. i'll try my best to make this last. i'm sure this doesn't mean much to anyone else, but i am really happy.:smile:

    <i just realized that the title says no on academic probation... i meant "not". no wonder i haven't been doing well in school. lol>

    That's great flame, nice to see someone taking responsibility and doing something positive instead of blaming the school for their bad grades.

    Good job. A lot of people get discouraged if they don't get good grades or their grades slip. It's good that you decided to push through it and get better.

    I didn't do well my first year.

    Just stay positive, study as much as you can, and enjoy the moments.

    what are you talking about? it is so my school's fault! they didn't tell me the classes were so hard, that i'd have to study so much. my teachers didn't remind me when my assignments were due. sure, they gave me a syllabus, but how can they expect you to keep up with it from one week to the next?? plus, a lot of the classes were right around lunch, so i was either too tired or too hungry to concentrate. i was the victim of a flawed education system....

    j/k :biggrin:

    Well, I didn't eat at lunch. I just waited till I went home to actually, digest anything.

    That description of college as, tough is quite an accurate description.

    I've skipped class so many times because it was at 8:30am I can't even count anymore.

    A lot of them were also the only class of my day and my commute to school is an hour long. Nuts to that.

    Glad to hear you've pulled up your grades! Congrats!

    Congrats. I say this because most people never rebound. What you did is a complete turn around, and you should be proud.

    Keep it up man!

    Good job.

    I had a hell of a time last year (freshman in HS) and I'm hoping that it'll be better this year.
