One bad grade (3L)

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 29, 2013 9:48 am

Hey all,

I received my one and only C grade in 3L last semester. The grade is in a course completely unrelated to my specialty. I'm not exactly sure what happened and I have attempted a meeting with the Professor a few times. However, he has not responded to any of my requests.

I will likely graduate with honors and I already have a full time offer lined up post graduation from my summer gig. Will this fluke grade hurt my career prospects later on? For example, lateraling to another firm? Will firms even notice? I have mostly As and A- with a few B's and B+ sprinkled in on my transcript. If anyone with experience and knowledge in this could reply, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Quite certain that it won't matter at all, especially if it's in a course you could not have cared less about.

Thank you. I was just worried. I really don't know what happened. Maybe I'm being petty, but it did upset me.
