Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi folks I know I'm becoming a bit of a frequenter on this board asking for academic advice, so here I go again. I've just finished a turbulent second semester at my university taking 5 courses at first before dropping Biology as I no longer was into it. I've recently been re-evaluating what I want to study and do and I am thinking more along the physical science/math line. However my last semester was extremely rough and though I did pull off an 85% in Calculus I, I had a huge beating in Linear Algebra I mostly due to a beating I took on the first midterm of 18% (Class average hovered in the 20's) and managed to scrape through after working my damnedest on the second midterm and final but only managed to scrape by with a 52% in the course. Other than that my Chemistry was lower than I expected, even though I studied for it the most with only a 70%. I'm not quite sure if I should press on, I'm currently rereading all my notes and studying up on everything to make sure I'm adequately prepared for another round of Calculus/Physics/Chemistry and two other courses (possibly Linear Algebra II and Discrete Mathematics) in the fall. But I don't know if I will be judged for that first bad Linear Algebra I and how much it will affect me for Linear Algebra II even if I study my butt off during the summer. The other problem is I don't really know what I would do if I were to quit, I'm not hugely trade oriented (but I could learn) and arts majors are having trouble finding employment. Should I press on or will my low marks come back to haunt me trying to pick up a job or develop professionally later? Thanks.
