I'm asking just to pass one course of 7 I'm taking. Three I've already taken the finals, three I can pass with a C-/C-/D+ even if I skip the final, but the last one...

Pray for me friends

Hate school. I was a good student and got great grades, I just couldn't take tests worth a damn. That's why I got out as fast as I could manage. Hope you do well!

I ask for and expect nothing. Gifts are reserved for children and parents.

In fact I don't enjoy this time of year because I end up spending a ton of money to keep other people from complaining about how bored they are.

This SAV will replace another older less efficient SUV which is already 'on our roads' so that part is a wash. I'm leaning toward sDrive gas in my search for the perfect used 2018 F15
I was out on the roads yesterday. I notice 50% of the cars are sport utility type vehicles. Nice to see their gas mileage is edging up.
When I don't need the space I drive my little car.

Cs and Ds get degrees! Just get out of there in 4yrs as most schools are designed now to keep students 4.5-5 yrs and soak them in even more student loan debt.

No one is going to care that you didn't graduate with honors unless you are going on to grad or post grad work. I have hired plenty of MBAs and never get stuck on "well this one has a 4.0 gpa vs this one at 3.2" it comes down to the candidates ability to apply knowledge to the position. Great to know things in a book...totally other world to apply them successfully in a professional environment.

Good luck and hope you get out in 4!

+1.

Application is one of the biggest problems I have seen when hiring within my group. Just having the degree will get your foot in the door of most companies. Once you are that far, I'm not going to ask you to give me an example of the Ideal Gas Law.

I'm going to take you in the plant, pose a hypothetical problem on a real piece of equipment, and ask how you go about troubleshooting the issue. Then I'm going to ask if it's a design flaw...or just operator error!

I have an ME, CE, and a Maintenance group working for me..an EE. How we all "mesh" as a team is more important to me than anything.

Appreciate the good words! I'm way past the honors mark but I still need to pass the course to be able to graduate one day

Just wait until February and March after all the snow and ice - freeze, melt, repeat - and the craters show up. I had to wait until May last year to put on my summers. It was a crazy pot hole repair season.
