I have a big GPA problem...
I am a sophomore at a upper tier target (Harvard, Wharton, etc) and I have a bit of a dilemma. After taking 4 classes this semester, I got A's in 3 of them, and a C- in calculus (due to lack of interest in the course, didn't like the professor, personal issues with my mom passing away).
With this C-, my GPA is 3.5, and without it, my GPA is 3.9. I have the option of retaking it next semester, and the grade that I get will replace the C- when calculating my GPA, but the C- will remain on my transcript.
Do you guys think I should retake it? I REALLY dislike the class and it would be hell to retake it, and the C- would remain on my transcript. However, if I can manage a B ish or higher, my GPA wouldn't fall to 3.5. Or would you guys say leave the C- and boost it later with other courses?
This is a big deal to me and I'll gladly give silver bananas to any helpful / non-trolling comments. Thanks
