But 2 days ago I had a scary moment where it said I had an F in my independent study on my records. After some crying, screaming and wailing, I contacted my professor and demanded feedback from him on my work. Turns out I hadn't registered for his section, and another professor was under the assumption that I was Grand Idiot Slacker Supreme who never showed up to his course. This kindly gentleman was kind enough to work with my professor to change my grade in his system based on my work in the course. Moral of the story - check your registration before mid-winter.
Glad to see someone else on here in my program I'm taking higher ed law this coming quarter and sooo not looking forward to it. Glad your section miscommunication worked out!!

I haven't gotten ALL my grades back yet, but even worst-case scenario I just pulled an A-/B+ GPA despite taking two more classes than most people at my school usually do and starting my thesis. And more importantly... I PASSED ORGANIC CHEMISTRY!

Update: 3.62! Would've been darn close to a 4 if it weren't for organic chem, but I'm thanking my lucky stars that I passed that one!

SOOOO close to a 3.5!

Highest GPA thus far!

(you don't know how hard it is to break a 3.0 at my school)

SOOOO EXCITED!

3.7 this semester!
Still proud of myself even though it really is not one of my best semesters academically, I was SO busy. Meetings and practices every single night + work during the day when I didn't have class (hope involvement on campus is counted when I'm looking for a job!)

Ooooh CONGRATS! I cannot WAIT to graduate from nursing school. Next December for me God willing! In my nursing program, the first year you take one class at a time, but the first, Fundamentals, is 6 credits, and Med/Surg 1 is 7 credits. Next semester I do Med/Surg 2 and Psych, next summer Peds, and then next Fall Critical Care, Acute Care Practicum, and a trends course.
I got an A in Med/Surg 1 this semester, and so far, I keep my 4.0 nursing school GPA WOOOOO!

Wow! 4.0-congrats to you!!! I am in an ASN program so my classes are more condensed. I will follow up with an RN to BSN program (which I can mostly do online) that my school offers. It will only take 3 semesters which suits me fine. I graduated from college a Loooong time ago but was still able to use some of the coursework towards my new degree. Yay!

PEDS is pretty hard, I thought. Mostly because almost everything is different for the various age levels (B/P, HR etc) OB was my favorite and the easiest so far. I have Med/Surg and Psych this semester. My Med/Surg clinical will be on a cardiac floor (last year was oncology). My Psych rotation will be at a detox center in the mountains. Maybe I will see some of those Ga meth addicts I keep hearing on the commercials. I look forward to hearing how you are doing!

Thanks, I am in an associates program too at my local CC. I eventually DO want to be a NP, and my state university offers a RN to MSN program, so I'm leaning pretty heavily on doing that right now. My psych is going to be in the psych unit of our local hospital. We will have 2 days at a community mental health agency also. Then for med/surg the unit I am on is really just general med/surg with some renal thrown in for good measure. I have heard peds IS tough and we are doing it in 8 weeks! I found the OB subject material (we did that last summer) to be pretty easy but the tests were RIDICULOUSLY hard. I have heard that this semester coming up is the worst one out of the 4, so yeah. We'll see. And good luck to you with the meth addicts LOL!

It's my first semester at my new school, and on top of pledging, working, commuting, and being a student athlete, I got a 4.0! I'm SO excited! Woohoo!

I have to wait until tomorrow for confirmation, but as it currently stands, I am graduating with a 4.0 GPA for the first time in my entire life.

On April 30, I will walk across a stage and receive a diploma which bears the words Master of Science in Nonprofit Management! Excuse me while I shed a tear of joy.
