I just saw some of this semester's grades. I had an economics class that was hard. Well, the material itself wasn't hard, but the way the class was organized made it difficult (professor wasn't a native English speaker, class was based on a cumulative point system and getting points was hard, the way the tests were formatted made it very difficult to study for, etc.). I knew I would pass the class, but I was expecting to earn a B or something. I just looked at my grades that have come in, and I got an A in the class. That's great, but I saw that I got an A- in my sociology class. It wouldn't bother me so much, but I was carrying a 4.0 up until then and now there's no possible way to graduate with a perfect GPA. In a way, I was expecting to drop below a 4.0 anyways because of the econ class, but it bites that I was so close to not dropping below and I probaly missed it by a point or two (class was based on three exams. I got an A on the first two. I probaly got an A- on the last one). I know that I can't get mad at myself over it, because I don't feel I could have studied anymore for the exam. I'm just a perfectionist though, and it bothers me. I would like to try and win a Marshall scholarship for graduate school, and having a perfect GPA would have been nice for that. Well, just wanted to vent.
