Once again, my freshman year has come back to bite me in the buttocks. In applying to graduate today, I was surpised to find that I was to graduate Cum Laude. In ignorance, I asked if that was the best one. The advisor responded, “No no, That’s the best one,” pointing to Summa Cum Laude. “It all equates to your GPA. Your 3.51 gets you Cum Laude.” “Wait,” I said. “My GPA is much higher than that. I have a 3.71.”
In checking with Admissions and Records, I found that University of Colorado averages grades of retaken courses, even if they were replaced at a different University. The four classes that I re-did don’t seem to matter.
CURSE YOU SUU! AND YOUR LATE NIGHT STARCRAFT PARTIES! A certain seventeen year old freshman was powerless to your indolence.
