    ok right now i'm on the verge of flunking out of my dream school. i'm here on a scholarship so if my grades slip i'm fucked. i had to drop my art class which was 6 hours, so now my parents are starving themselves in order to pay for 3 classes at this fuckin place. the classes i'm left with, well i might just fail all of em. i'm thinking about talking to my prof's to see if there is ANY possible way out of failing. what are your experiences with this?? i really don't want to ask for favors cos i know i fucked up & it's my fault, & my prof's already hate me. this probably seems like petty bullshit to you guys but i've always been afraid to approach my superiors about mistakes i've made, plus my parents are hardcore academians and are about to slit my throat and dump me in the river. ADVICE?

    so far i've determined what i need to NOT do anymore if i want to be here next sem:
    DON'T:
    1)schedule 8:30 am classes
    2) don't smoke on nights before exams
    3) don't get so trashed on a regular basis that your school makes you go to substance abuse counseling
    4)don't think that caffiene/sleeping pills are a great idea
    5)don't put off switching roommates if yours is crap

    feel free to close this thread it goes to shit. sorry

    damn that sucks. thank god im poor and didn't decide to go to some big name school because college is very overrated. its like a big fucking scam, i know people who are about to finish their 4th year, have obtained average grades but still dont know what the hell they are gonna be doing after they graduate. Plus they have to pay a shit load in loans. I think one of the main reasons a lot of kids fuck up at college is because of highshcool. Sure its your own fault if you make ass backwards decisions but a lot times its because highschool ,esp. public highschools really don't prepare you for college.

    Dunno what to tell ya. Find the papers or projects that got you down,
    and revise the fuck out of them. Write a letter of apology to your
    teachers for giving them a hard time BEFORE you go asking for ways
    around failure. Stop smoking. Entirely, or at least until you've made
    some headway. And if theres shit you need to know that one of us could
    help you with, don't be afraid to ask (just be afraid of some of the retards
    who'll answer.)



    Get at me some time if you need to talk.

    do try talking to your prof's. im my experience i've learned some will help you straight while others will not. my college time sucked though, i went to a dope school in NC, came back to my girl of 4 and a half years who started goin w/ another dude, transferred to some frat ass bullshit college in NJ and got kicked out w/ 122 credits and a passing GPA bc i got into an argument with some cocksucker dean about a letter he claimed to have sent, but isn't in my file that it was ever sent. ive tried wrtng the college president bou tit even but that fuck up is practically worse than me. fuckin guy is in the news now, not only was he able to get away w/ drunk driving in which the copper detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath after he hit a car and drove away, but just admitted to cheating on his wife and thats why he left his last college job. sorry for rambling.

    Very simple

    I was in your same situation and I managed to get my way back in by appealing. I just wrote a letter addressing my problems and distractions ( I had 4 friends die during finals) and with the proper documentation; newspaper obituaries, and a prescription for lexapro (an anti-depressant) I was finally let back in. Hopefully this can help you out.

    Lens' tips For Success

    1.Don't drink during the week

    2.Don't let your gf give you fucked up news right before midterms

    3.Do become freiends with nerds and study with them. Don't laugh, they've saved my ass more than once.

    4.Fuck popularity. With studying comes the grades, and with the grades comes law school and with that education Lens' becomes a lawyer, Lens makes boo-coo dollars, Lens stocks up on material wealth and in roll the friends. yah. Bottom line....a good academic record leads to success and if your social life has to suffer for a few years, so be it. You'll be glad you did years down the road when you can afford to have fine assasian sisters both suck you off at once every night (my motivation to do good)

    5.Never underestimate the power of black tea.
