I’ll get right to it. I’m a 30yo CC student who was planning to transfer to UCSD this fall. However, I’m currently doing really bad in my Calculus course. Might not even pass. One option is to maybe get by with a C. Another option is to drop it and take the W and talk to the UC and see if they’ll give me an extension. And the only other option I can think of is to stay at my CC and get an A. I know I can get an A bc the concepts aren’t that hard. The reason I’m doing so poorly is that my mother just passed away and I’m taking it really hard and having trouble focusing.
What should I do?
