    Sorry to hear how ugly this class was. Apparently, classes have gotten increasingly stringent as we go along. I had Family and Transitions together in January and got an A in both. However, Ethics was god awful horrible in the grading. We had to do group projects and our group recieved a 70% on our first project. I worked like a fiend on the last two group projects...spent countless man hours doing so...to improve my grade. Recevied all A's on homework...but that 70% kept my final grade down to a B+. I was furious that another individuals work(or lack thereof) was able to dictate my final grade. I wrote the Prof and never heard a word back from her. I have been very discouraged since this happened.

    I still have 4 nursing classes left and my mojo has fizzled.

    Sorry to hear about your problems in Ethics. What you describe is precisely why I hate group projects.

    I can see why your mojo meter is pointing toward E but hang in there. Four more classes is, in Ralph Cramden's words, "a mere bag of shells."

    3 more and I can hardly wait. If I'd had this last prof for the first class I probably would have quit the program. I won't even share the email from her when I told her I needed unexpected surgery in the middle of the course. It was along the lines of put on a tourniquet and get back to work...

    Only cross-cultural elective...took it elsewhere and transferred it in. That was all I needed.

    I do not understand why they are saying i need electives in order to satisfy the general graduation requirements.I will be taking all nursing classes plus buscomp and art.

    How many credits did you transfer in? Did you have credits above what was necessary for your nursing degree? You have to have X amount of credits in each catagory in order to fulfill university requirements. Look at your DARS - it will tell you what you need.

    every area would be fulfilled; hence the reason for elective. However i have plenty of credit over my ASN degree. I have over 100 credits. How many credits do you have? I am so frustrated, i have no intention on taking electives when i already have so much credits

    Sorry if i sound snappy i am just so upset especially after family. I think i know what the problem is and i am hoping that OU will understand. Apparently my classes that are actually 4 semester credit hours are showing up as 2 credits. I think this is happening because i started on quarters and they are changing to semesters. In my opinion my 4 credits should remain 4 since they were actually taken at a semester school. please can you check your dars to see if that has happened to you.
