I'm a senior in college this year, and am planning on applying to graduate school next year. I'm majoring in Biomedical Engineering and made the (apparently fucking dumb) decision to finish a minor in chemistry. I aced both Orgo classes last year, and just had two biochem classes left. The teacher for the first seemed good and all, until the first exam. Got a 78 on that, class average was a 71. Fucking hard. This kept happening, the tests were borderline unfair. He kept asking questions that were like "Circle all that are FALSE" and there's like 10 questions that are extremely specific, that he never talked about in class, and weren't really in the book either. Instead of asking us to write about what we know, he asked us bullshit true/false or multiple choice questions instead. He didn't curve at all, I ended up with a fucking 79 and he didn't bump me. First C ever. Killed my GPA. Went from a 3.91 to a 3.85. Apparently he likes giving people Cs, seeing how I was above the class average as well. If I didn't decided to finish the fucking minor, this never would have happened. I feel like such a dumbass. Of course, while I decided to struggle academically for the first time in my life, I asked a girl to come hang out at my apartment last week. She said that she would come over around 3 o'clock, and she just never showed up. This has been the 3rd time this has happened. Nothing is going right in my life right now. I just want to sleep forever. Nothing is making me happy, no matter how hard I try with certain things they just don't work out. I don't even know anymore
This has been the angriest I've ever felt in my entire life?

Man I would have complained to the teacher. I had this once and I discussed this after the exam, and some questions ended up not counting resulting in another free exam attempt. His problem was that he wasn't the one who made the exam, which tricked us into learning stuff that wasn't even going to get asked in the first place.
And that girl is worthless, let her go.0

1. the issue regarding your class. the dip in your gpa is not that big of a deal. i know it's frustrating but the difference of.6 on your gpa really isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. i guarantee that most grad schools are not going to discount you because of it. also when you write essays for applications you could discuss that specific course. how it was difficult but how that challenge was really informative in terms of life
2. the girl situation. you know the saying, "fool me once. shame on you. fool me twice, shame on me"? well apply this here. clearly this girl is a flake so stop waiting on her
... take a step back and put it all in perspective. do some things that are fun and will take your mind off of all the crap0
