Poll: Pass/Fail vs. GPA drop (re:senioritis)

Postby wordword » Wed Mar 03, 2010 6:14 pm

Context:

I've gotten into the school I will attend next year.

I'm finishing up UG and have senioritis--bad.

I need to finish all 5 classes I'm taking right now. But, it looks like I'll get C's in at least 2 of them. My Gpa is slightly lower than 3.8, so C's would kill my GPA.

My UG as the option of changing the classes to Pass/Fail classes, however. In which case if I get a C- or better, the grade on my transcript will be denoted P, with no implications for my GPA if I get a P.

You can Pass/Fail senior classes? That seems horribly wrong.
