Very Depressed and worried about my GPA :(
Hello Everyone, I am new to SDN and I am really looking for some feedback on my situation, and what I can do to improve. So, I am currently a third year undergraduate student at UC San Diego and I just finished my first quarter here, as I am a transfer student from a community college. Anyways, I transferred in with a 3.8 overall and a 3.7 science gpa with only upper division classes left for me to take.
