hey people...i just graduated from High school this june [2003]. i decided to start at JC and then transfer to UC Berkeley or UCLA. i took discrete maths in deanza college and received a 'D'. i was shocked since i did really well in AP classes in HS. the transition didnt go well.
im planning to take that class again but i am afraid that berkeley will reject me because of the 'D'. do i stand a chance? man, i am gonna try ma best from now to get a 3.7 and above. EECS ohh man !

that's bad. You need something really special to get into berkeley with a D.

BTW what exactly is Junior College? Is that like Community College or what?

Deanza is a community college in the south bay area in California.

depends on how you got the D. Did you try hard, did all the homework, but did bad on tests?

Or did you understand the material, aced the tests, but slacked off because it was too boring? did no homework, participation, ect...

Being lazy but smart is a lot more curable than being diligent and dumb.

It was mainly the teacher...
he changed the grading scale 2 days before the final exam. trust me, everyone in the class did really bad.
I am doing really good in my current classes @ deanza it was only that class arghhh...
