EDIT 2: This thread was intended to ask about the 3.8 floor, and if I have a chance at HYS. It was not/is not about random evauation on my internal blame-placing process. If you disagree with my position in the post, that's fine, but at least try to direct your post at helping answer the question I asked rather than solely coming to tell me your position on my inner-justifications.
As mentioned in another post, I had some damage done to my GPA... totally needlessly, which is the part that hurts the most.
Basically, 3 hours of a B came from some bad advising in which I went in to find out if I already had the credit for this required class from an A credit (and a transfer), because the website said I did not. Turns out, due to the transfer, I had the credit and my advisor just didn't know what he was talking about. By the time I found out the date to drop had already passed and I was stuck with my B.
Later, I took Spanish 1 at my first school and got an A. I transfered to a bigger/tougher school, and due to their re-organizing of their spanish curriculum I had to take a Spanish 1 - 2 class and recieved a B-, this class being 6 hours worth. I ended up taking the rest of my spanish during the summer at a community college (cheaper, quicker, easier). The result being that the B- I got actually serves no purpose, I wasn't able to use it as a Spanish 2 course because it didn't completely fill the requirements of the CC's Spanish 2 course, so now I have Spanish 1 at one school, Spanish 1/2 at another, and Spanish 2, 3, and 4 at yet another.
So now I have 9 hours of useless credit that has done .08 damage to my GPA and it seems that a lot of the top schools have a 3.8 GPA floor, at least that's the indication on LSN. What do you guys think? I doubt there is anything I can do to remedy the situation (I've tried), so now I'm just assessing the damage.
On the bright side, you've gotta be pretty fucking good at Spanish by now.
