(of course ITE TLS is inclined to darken anyone's prospects regardless of rank) I don't know. Maybe go talk to your profs about what you did that was so bad, see if you can't improve? I'd say stick out the spring semester or trimester or w/e you're on. Good luck either way.
relatively small pile of debt = a little over 4k, which isn't really a debt bc my total assets > 4k
I guess I could do that but at this point I don't think it would even make much of a difference

The sun could rise from the West, too. It happened twice according to the Egyptians according to Herodotus. Anything is possible.

No, I go to a T25, not PCoL.

your worries about grades are far less worrisome than others. stick it out, improve, and you'll still be OK.
Yea I do. But at this point...it's probably smarter to try to get a job as a patent agent that graduate in the bottom 20% of the class and find a job as a patent attorney, y'know?

Easier said that done?

Well if I majored in EE I don't think I'd give a shit. Lol @ having publications, good UG grades, or good WE tho.
