wooo grades posted

Finally my money goes towards something speedy at college

I recieved an 89 in Logic (damn professor wont round up... damn him)

and.. .I did meet my goal with the stupid algebra class.. scored a 78 son... (hey... thats good for me.. i have test anxiety.. now I'm onto college algebra.. they stuck me in this class because i tested bad...test anxiety sucks)

I'm awaiting my english and health class scores.. I should have a low A to high B in engrish and an A in a mandatory health class everyone has to take...

lame

anyways.. my GPA sits at a 3.5 now.. woop.

My Goal is to keep my GPA above a 3.3.. Sure a 4.0 would be nice but not everyone can be perfect.

Good job Don, it is hard work. Hope you spread your studing out over the whole semester vs. trying to cram at the last minute.

Both really... Today I have no class so I felt really out of place not doing HW or studying. So what did I do? I watched movies and played with my new TI-84...

Now I can sell back my algebra book since I wont need it for college algebra. I held onto it just in case ya know...

lame... All of my prof's gave each of us a little conference during class to see where we sat and what our grades would be and etc. I know I passed all of my classes. I just need to stick to my goal.

I don't see how I could have survived a university.. especially in a college algebra class with 500 other students -gasp-. I like this more one on one deal.

Congrats, Joe. And keep that pinky elevated, too.

My kid's last exam is next friday and the grades are to be posted by Tuesday, I think. They are pretty quick on turnaround. I don't expect his grades to be as good this semester. He took 19.5 hrs and some pretty heavy duty stuff and it about killed him. He had a 3.8 last time, I'll have to be happy if he nets a 3.5 this time. Poor kid gets home from the out of town university Saturday morning and has to be at the local University as a visiting (for credit) student on Tuesday, I think. He has not learned to spread out his stuff over the whole year very well like you guys have. Too many sleepless nights this week and next. He'll probably sleep all day when he gets home.

I could have coached you to a 100% grade on your logic. You could argue, logically of course, and provide a proof, with again, proper annotation, that you should get an A.
