The Question Club
TQC. I am taking precalculus for the third time. I have failed it twice before. I am a people brain, not a math brain. I have been trying to understand it, though. I work at problems until the stress of trying to decipher this gibberish physically makes me ill. |
I am taking this class so that the Fs get replaced for my GPA. Also so grad schools can look at me and go, "oh. she tried hard to pass until she did! god, why would she do that. Precalculus sucks."
I do not need it otherwise. I am a psych major who is really good at all the mathy stuff I actually had to learn. I have a 3.06 GPA according to my transcript, and a 3.2 according to my program evaluation (our online stuff is a bit inconsistent). The only problem is I'm interested in applying to clinical graduate programs. They are picky. Pickypickypicky. I don't want to make myself look bad.
I really want to drop this class. I have to take the GRE this semester, and apply to graduate schools, and get my senior thesis done, and all of that exciting responsible nonsense.
But I was all excited about taking this over and totally getting a B this time, for sure! I feel like I'm letting myself down, but this class is making me miserable.
What would you do?
