First off, I would like to say that the school is beyond the most UNPROFESSIONAL institution I have ever attended! When I transferred here from Arkansas because of my husbands military dedication, all I can say is that I definately recieved my money worth. When I registered, A lady by the name I will not disclose was very, very unprofessional. She was on the phone with a maintenance man the whole time talking very slang. I and my husband, whom had just had surgery took time out of our day to drive all the way from Phenix City to see an advisor. When we arrived, I was disgusted by this lady, and to think she has a DR. in front of her name! I took a Chemistry class here as well and was very unprepared and after I had asked to recieve a "W" after the withdrawl date or an "I", I was turned down. I am truly considerate of my life and how well I do in my studies, I just felt like no one here gave a damn about why I was there or how well I did. I'm not your average student, I am married, my husband works 16 hour days and I do have a 16 month old. I never asked for any special treatment, just a simple understanding. I would recommend going out of your way if at all possible and find a different college to spend your money at.

College isnt for everyone. You have no one to blame for your lack of performance except yourself. Life would be so much easier if we could all apply for incompletes and ws when things go bad. As a student and enrollee in the class you agree to do the work and be there or accept the consequences. They may have a second chance policy where you redo the course and have the bad grade removed. Sorry things didn't go as planned, that's life, but they are not to blame for adhering to their policies. How long before the end of the semester did you know that you would be unable to complete the coursework? Maybe when you knew for sure, you should have said something instead of making it worse.

People are always looking for someone to blame. Getting an education requires SACRIFICE!!!! Just because you have the means to go to school does not mean that they automatically give you the grade. COLLEGE IS NOT "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!!!!!"

Yetti, I do not need to explain myself to you. I was just letting it be known that this institution is very UNPROFESSIONAL. I showed great performance and work ethic if you must know. Before coming here I had all A's and few B's on my transcript... coming from a Northern University level school. That says something. I'm not a traditional student and YES school is for me. I'm not like every one else from this shithole, who lives off of welfare and Obamas free healthcare. Thats not me, I want to better myself from this so-called society.
Some-One -to- Blame, Maybe you play the blame game but that was never my intention in this post. Having "means" aka money? I don't quite know where you are going with this one. But save yourself the humiliation and go back to college to do better than a bull degree. Mine happens to be Biology for a pre-med education, 70 hours left with a 3.4 isn't so bad. I always heard rumors of poor education in the South but, this is exceeding the limit.

Regardless of how you feel about your prior performance, you did not meet their standards. You can talk about northern, southern, eastern, western, central, up, down left, right, in between, over there, here, other schools, all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that you didn't make it. I don't care why you didn't make it, you didn't. If life were fair, we'd be eating cotton candy and riding the merry-go-round all the time. Maybe it just wasn't your time to go back. Regardless, you cannot blame the school because you failed and certainly cannot justify claiming that northern schools are better when you come down here and fail a class. By your logic, you should have made straight A's with the poor education here, it shouldn't be hard for you at all.

I know you're wanting to better yourself, that's great; we all should strive to be better, yet we have to know deep within when to say not right now.

Quick suggestion though, you should really attempt to go somewhere else for school than a community college if you're wanting to go pre-med. It just doesn't look good and their are not as many courses offered at that level. You should go to AU and major in pre-medicine and a 3.4 isn't bad, but it doesn't set you apart from other applicants to med-schools unless you really done something amazing that you can put on your resume.

With that said, where are you going to go for med-school? UA? UGA? UF? All southern schools. With your obvious bone with southern schools and their lack of transfer of knowledge, wouldn't you say that you would be better suited as a student in a...northern school where the education is just so much better? I wouldn't want you to feel as if you're a dumb doctor. Not only that, if your situation arises again while in med-school, they will fail you and probably will never get a chance to make that up. If you have children, married to working husband, you are going to have it rough learning to be a MD; rougher actually, on top of studying to late hours, going to class, you still have your number one obligation to take care of your kids.
