A 2.0 gpa for my entire freshman year. (1.9 first semester, 2.1 second specifically). I don't have any excuses. But if you want any, I've been dealing with a case of mild depression that I have gotten over now that I have found my real path. I tried to force myself into the the whole pre med crap being that I have relatives who influenced me towards it, even though I have never been proficient in math or science. Call it being immature and idiotic, failed precalc and got a D in gen bio first semester and then failed precalc AGAIN second semester. Long nights of thinking have led me to believe that I should not force myself through these math/science courses and instead focus on my excellent writing, reading, and speaking skills. I've realized I found my calling in law as a 19 year old. I know, I messed up. But I've aced all my other classes that don't involve math or science, hence I'll be changing my major. (Human Resource management specifically).
I apologize for the absurdly long post....but are my shots at a t14 school done for due to a terrible start to my undergrad career? Believe me, it's 4.0 or die from here on out..I've got too much riding on me. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
