I'm a little conflicted right now. Yesterday they posted the grades from our fifth exam. We only have the comprehensive final left. I did great, got a 95%! Called to check in with the folks I hang with...4 are not coming back next semester! 3 were very borderline(something they didnt share with me, just let me know they were solid "C" students and would be here next semester). Turns out the 3 of them scored very low. 2 of them hope to make it up on the final by getting higher grades than they ever have(is this possible?)if not they will not be back; the other doesnt even know if taking the final will make anykind of difference. One other pal is moving out of state and hopes to transfer to a program there.
I'm so sad, sad that these folks that I have gone through prereqs with are not moving on with me. I'm mad! Why didnt they tell me and let me help them by doing more group studying or getting help from our retention coordinator? I'm going to miss these people, we have been through so much already together: chemistry, A&P I & II, clinicals, skill labs etc. The program just won't seem the same. Does this happen every semester? I guess I just need to toughen up and accept these losses and do my best to be there for them. They have all worked very hard and I know they are all very disappointed.
Thanks for letting me vent!

Good luck luvs2read!! We had our cumulative final today and I passed, so I am happy and RELIEVED it's over for us!!
We've lost quite a few over the course of the semester, and there apparently might be a few who won't do well enough on the final to recover...I'm just not real sure, but that's what I've gathered from conversations...
I'm sure you'll do great!! Hope you get a chance to rest and recharge over the break!
