Depends. Are you a B+ or a B/B- first year curve school?

Answer this question before buying Popov vodka and a .45.

I'd get the Popov now, but hold off on the .45

Public defender's offices are very selective.


LOL, but thesealocust is correct.

No, you are not doomed. Presumably, you schools curves to a 3.0. You are 0.33 points about the curve. This likely places anywhere in the top 30 - 40%.

Yes, you are doomed. lol. Kidding aside, you're fine. People (i.e. me) would die to have a B+ gpa. you're already ahead of the game imo. Plus, if you want to do better, you can always shoot for straight A's next sem.

You're still very much in the game from what I understand.
