◢ If I could redo second year…
I might have been just the tiniest bit insane at the time when I decided to enroll myself in BIO260 all in the name of “challenging myself”. With a midterm that swept the class away with an average of 45% (now 55%), I see my GPA riding that same wave into the far off horizon, never to be seen again.
In all honesty, I should’ve just swapped out STA220 for HMB265 in the fall semester; STA220 and BIO260 are probably the worst decisions I have made in second year, and now I am stuck with some mediocre marks on my transcript as well as a course load that is just short of being full (good bye med school).
And if I could just redo first year while I’m at it….. SOC102 wouldn’t be a thing; I’d fight my way into ENV100 and add PHY131/132 to my course load. Then I would’ve had 6.0FCE with a 5.0FCE workload and I wouldn’t be worrying about not being able to meet my subject POSt requirements by the time I graduate, like the way I am now. And I should’ve joined half a dozen clubs with all the free time I had.
Even taking FSL421 as CR/NCR has only come back to bite me since I had no idea that CR on your transcript is equivalent to having a 50 when applying for professional and grad schools.
As I am now, I have conflicts left, right and centre with genetics and physics butting heads. Looks like I’ll be spending the next 2 years trying to make up for this GPA of mine, and I’ve heard it only gets worse.
