    Well I finally screwed up, the community college I go to only allows 6 missed days..then your dropped.

    Last week my gov lock in the 14 bolt went boom, so no I had no ride to school, the ride I did have was 30 minutes to late every day.

    So I leave my first semester with alot learned, and 3 A's and 1 B that don't even count now, there goes my chance for getting into ASU's school of business too, as it is the list is a mile long and a minimum of a 3.7 or higher gpa get in /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    well I think I will get a second car now, my parents are going to think I am stupid for wasting my money for nothing too, hopfully I can get it right next semester /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    half of life is just showing up....good quote, but a little late /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Its not the end of the world, I'm sure that there are ways that you can work out going to ASU. I know that its easier said that done, but can you not just start over at spring semester and try again?

    Good quote, I like it.

    That's weak but it's not the end of the world. I'm taking classes at a community college and they wont transfer over to my regular college sjsu in time for me to register so I guess I'll have a lot of time to wrench on my ride in a few months! College will screw you left and right, keep that in mind. My first semester they had an error in their system and all of my classes were dropped, I had to start from scratch. I've got a million stories of college dicking me, but you just have to suck it up and deal with it. I'm sure you'll be fine, don't worry.

    Wow, if I could only miss 6 days I would have been kicked out of school too. I think I went to less than 6 of my english classes over two semesters /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Yes I aced both classes too /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Tested out of 101/102 and aced 103&104
    The classes I hated in high school I got the highest grades in in college. The classes I done well in in HS I had a hard time with in college /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif College is wierd but if you have the chance to go it was one of the best 4years of my life! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Now if I could just find a job with my degree /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Man that sucks /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif PVCC doesn't have any rules like that, but the teacher can drop you from a class if you don't show up 6 times. Hope everything works out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah I know. I graduated after summer semester in July 2000 (I didn't want to set threw the huge graduation at years end so I took 4 summer classes, the parents wanted me to do the graduation walk/stage/pic thing).

    Most college semesters are 15-18 credit hours (3per class) anything over 18 is considered overload. I took on average 21 per semester (usually 4 day classes (M,W,F or Tues/Thurs) and 3 night classes mon,tues,wed nights). So I had 4.5 years (9 semesters) total

    took 5 to get my BS. The way the PSU architecture program is setup, you cant finish it in less than 3 years, even if your dad is the head of the department. Studios have to be taken in turn, and taking them during the summer wont advance you any faster either... it just gives you the option of taking a term off during the year.
