Hello, I am in the process of registering for Fall courses. I need to RAISE my GPA and I'm currently set on 3 courses for sure and wondering if I should add an additional 2 credit elective course to possibly raise my GPA?
Here's my dilemma. Two of my courses are letter graded but one is a C/NC course so my GPA for the Fall would seemingly come down to those 2 letter graded courses if I elect to just stick with these three. However, if I add the 2 credit elective course, I might be able to raise my GPA or at least balance it out assuming I do well in the elective.
I am also working, so I'm debating whether I should just take the 3 courses and focus on them or if I should add that elective course as a safety net. The two grades courses are required so there is a strict curve, but the one elective course does not have a strict curve.
I just feel a little uneasy about having my GPA for the semester come down to 2 exams. However, one less course would make it easier for me to devote more time to these two letter graded courses.
