Well I read through the whole thread. I'd like to think everyone for supporting me and giving me some advice. I hate screwing up my first semester, but I don't feel bad since I know I still have four years of school left. I know I can get A's next semester. I've never been afraid of a challenge, and this is certainly a challenge.

During this winter break I've reflected on my past semester and determined for an engineering I just didn't try hard enough as I would like to think, thankfully I have plenty of time to make up for my horrible grades. For now I will have to just chill out and accept that my first semester was a disaster but will definately try to the most of my abilities next semester. I do have 26 hours worth of 'A' transfer credits I plan to claim so I do hope that will boost my GPA up to a decent looking grade next semester.

SportstownUSA, I read your post and I'm considering changing my schedule to have Moore. I heard he was a good professor and by you saying that as well it definately helps me restructure my schedule for next semester. Next semester I plan to do many things I didn't do this semester. This is a well learned lesson in life, and I don't think I'm the first student to suffer from this type of problem. I'm not an idiot and I would like to prove to everyone that doubts me that I'm not an idiot.

I've never had anyone in my family go to college. It's hard to come back with a C GPA, but I have to deal with it. I really want to be a Civil Engineer and I will try my hardest to do my best possible. Perhaps this semester was a fluke. I will not make up excuses though and just face this like a man. Sports, I would like to meet you.

Thank You very much ISH posters,
Isaac

I got As in all my physics and chemistry and math classes. My lowest grades were 2 Cs in corporate finance and international finance.

my advice on pre med is to get as close as you can to an A in every science class, do a fluff major like sociology or psychology, and do research

I just rely on my ability for the most part to succeed at Univ. But bear in mind my overall GPA is sub-3.0 since I just concentrate on my major's coursework and blow off the rest.

a lot of schools want you to have a liberal arts background. So engineering hurts in 2 ways: 1. it's not a traditional liberal arts major 2. It's difficult

Isn't that really what matters though?? I get somewhat weak grades in my elective courses simply because I don't give a damn, they are just there to fill out my schedule.

I will be applying to grad school coming up and they only look at your marks in your main degree courses.
