Florida Universities and Colleges don't like D's. To them it means "not failing" instead of passing.

But Holly, if you don't need Chem for a major, minor, or liberal studies requirement....you should be good to go from FAU to the new school.

Oh, here's your hug :hug

I'll tell you want is going on....

I need 2 more classes to graduate. If I passed Chemisty 1 I would go on to Chemistry 2 in the summer but since I didnt pass Chem I need 2 classes to graduate instead of just 1. Make sense?. I have no time to take 2 classes in the summer and there is no Chem 2 in the summer (last session). I already cancelled my family cruise and now I have to cancel my trip to N. Carolina with my family (July). What pisses me off is that my teacher kept telling me not to worry about my grade... :crying .

It's this long confusing process that is so hard to explain. Even the secertary at the deans office is wondering what I am going to do. She had no advice for me.

btw: since I went up to school I missed my graduation :( . Hopefully the Marlins will give me something to smile about tonight.

Sorry if this makes no sense... I am too annoyed to look over what I typed.

I probably can but I already missed my graduation. The lowest grade I can get to transfer is a C. No matter what I have to take the class over again TOMORROW!! :banghead

I'm not normally a proponent of grade-grubbing, but have you tried talking to your teacher and explaining the situation?

At the very least, find out how much you missed the C by.

Then you could scour (or have someone else scour) your tests and homework looking for questionable grading that can be contested. There are tools who do this after every test.

I am going to go talk to her tomorrow morning and then I am going to talk with the dean. Both Chem 1 and 2 start tomorrow and its first class attendance required.
This just stinks because I am always at school early (8am) studying for Chem. She sees me everyday studying for like 2 hours before class. Just sucks :( .

Good. Make sure you cry when you go and talk to her.

And show up to the chem 2 class. If/when this all works out, you'll be glad you showed up on the first day.

It's nice that people are offering to help you. If I knew a damn thing about it I would offer help as well, but I failed it in high school and took biology in college. :lol

chemistry sucks.

but its not as bad as biology.




also why are you even taking chemistry holly?


Unless you are a science major there are plenty of other less stressful sciences out there.

I am going into Dietetics and I have to take Chemistry 1 & 2 and Organic :( . I think I might change my major if I have more trouble with Chem 1. This is the first time I am having trouble in school. I have never gotten a F or D in my life other than this class. I am pretty much an A/B student. Well, life goes on......

Don't feel too bad. My old chemistry teacher was the spawn of Satan. Mrs Damian? Room 13? I think you see where I'm going with this. Anyhow, don't feel bad. I failed out of Chemistry. I could've passed it easy, but she had us do so much unnessesary bulls***, that I just stopped doing the work. When I didn't retake Chemistry, she told me that no College would accept me without a Chemistry Credit. I got into my college of choice without any problem (granted it was a tech school, but that's besides the point :p ). Point being, it's not the end of the world. Just keep your head up high and work hard.

Not to be mean, but if you can't get an A or B in Chem I and you want to do something science related.....you should probably look into a new major.

Just so you know how horrible my teacher is...

I talked to 4 friends in my class (the class had like 12 students). 3 out of 4 did not pass. I went to see my advisor today and she told me someone else came in her office and complained about the same teacher.

I think she failed or gave a D to over 75% of the class. She lied to us about the add on points because she never added them on.

Did you talk to her?

And please tell me you're attending chem 2 classes right now. If you haven't already, add it and have them bother you for pre-req's later. Or if somebody won't let you add it, get a signature to override it based on the fact that you should be receiving passing credit for chem 1 soon.

Absolutely do not give up on the chem 2 thing. You can't lose anymore time here.
