If your professor told you that if you get a 100% on your final, then you would..

...still only average out a D+ for the semester. Would you still show up for the final?

Skipping class FTL

EDIT: Just to clear some things up.

Attendance is not really 75% of the grade. I think he is holding my attendance against me.

I don't plan on retaking the course, I hate the class schedule and I'm not too happy with the professor's teaching. I do however plan ontransferring to a private school. So I'm wondering what is best as far as the private school admission....not showing up to the final or acing thefinal????????? If I don't take the final I will probably get an Incomplete, and which I will have one year to retake it, within that year I will haveplanned on transferring though (without my GPA)......

Last semester he dropped the lowest grade (I missed a test)...he gave me the impression he wouldn't do that FOR ME. And gave others the impression hewould....

lose-lose situation to be honest.

Because I had passed all my exams with flying colors. I don't see why it matters if I don't show up to class if I'm learning just as much if notMORE than everybody else on my own time.


Ol "Attendance is 75% of your grade" .....kiss my *** I'm paying to be here not the other way around.


Eh w/e. My GPA was a 3.75 before this semester...

Study hard for the final. You're probably going to have to take the class again even if you get a D (my school only takes C and up to consider it forcredit towards the major), and this way, you'll have a much easier time around. Just don't make the same mistakes you did the first time...

no point in showing up, the likelihood of getting a 100% on any given test is very slim.

wouldn't you rather get an F and then retake it? a D+ is nothin special

It's the same here. You have to have a C in order to move on to the next class. Last semester he dropped the lowest grade. Thing is, if hedropped the lowest grade I would pass the class easily (I missed a test). But since I only showed up half the time I think he's giving me a hard time aboutit, and not gonna let me off that easily.

Honestly I plan on transferring to a private school. This won't show up on my bachelor's, but I'mworried how it will effect my admission into the private school......

See that's what I'm thinking. I'm thinking if I miss the Final I will get an Incomplete on my transcript...which means I will have ayear to take the class over before it becomes an F. The thing is, is that I'm trying to apply to a private school...I'm wondering if the incompletewill actually help me or not...???
