tom1607307597 Posted September 9, 2008 Share Posted September 9, 2008 Here's a quick rundown of what my situation I'm dealing with. Right now I'm a sophomore at my university (should've been a junior but failed a few classes, took some unneeded courses up till now) and currently under academic probation. To get out of academic probation I need to get a 2.0 or higher (right now its a 1.9) so I had to fill out an academic contract with my advisor. When it came down to filling out the contract though it felt like my advisor was pretty much deciding everything for me instead of "discussing it" with me. My school uses something called a GRO where you can replace a bad grade by taking a class over again for up to 10 units. I've already used 4 of those and my advisor wants me to GRO Vector Calculus (another 4 unit class). So basically this will be my last GRO, but I even told him that I don't feel comfortable using my GRO on that class because I don't expect to get higher than a C. Even then I'm worried I'll GRO the class and fail it again, wasting my last GRO. I took it last semester and failed it, so I know not to expect an A or B. Should I just ignore the contract saying "I will GRO ________(vector calculus)" and just make sure I get at least a C in there? I know that if I do well this semester I can probably get back up to at least 2.2, but I don't know if they get on my case for not following that tiny part of the contract. Link to comment
