    everyone I talked to have A+ or A..no B, or A-, they have like 3.90 GPA. I feel so stupid compared to them. I tried so hard, but I didn't get the kind of mark they did. I was motivated sometimes, and sometimes I wasn't. Depression hit me while I was in school over and over, and now I don't see the point of holding on anymore. If I don't get into Chemical engineering (lota ppl have high GPAs), I don't think I would want to live anymore. its so much easier to kill myself. I'm not good enough to be kept alive, cuz my grades aren't that good..everyone is so much smarter than me..I'm not worth anything, they're so much better than me in everything..I'm good enough for any thing..the only thing I can think of is suicide..I wouldn't have to keep trying anymore..I wouldn't be depressed about failures no more..

    there are ppl out there whose is more useful than I will ever be..I might as well die then.. :blub:

    1.5% of the engineering faculty at the U of A has a 4.0GPA. And if you get a 2.5 you're pretty much guaranteed entry to ChemE.

    And further, EVERYONE GOING THROUGH FIRST YEAR ENGINEERING AT THE U OF A thinks they did horribly. Period. I've been there. I've seen the destruction and chaos.

    millions of people do not even have a college education and yet they continue to live happy lives. many of those who score 4.0 end up as lecturers / teachers / academics. then they go for Permanent Head Damage (PHDs). there is one wise saying, ' man compare man, compare until die'. Dont compare urself with others. if everyone who doesnt have a 4.0 cgpa should kill themselves, i think the world would have perhaps 100K of people.

    Is there anything else you would like to study other than Chemical Engineering?

    Ah ha!

    I'm a former 3.9 student from the U of A, and I just totally failed a course! Depression is rough. Seriously, don't worry about it.

    Personally, I've noticed that when you stop stressing about grades you end up doing better. I had a cousin who was at Harvard Law School, and she was failing because of the stress to do well. Once she stopped focusing on the grades themself, and focused on the work, she ended up not only passing all of her classes, but she was very close (like top 5%) of her class.

    When you get out into the world after education, nobody cares what your GPA was. There are as many successful people that did not have high GPAs as those that did. many times those with the highest GPAs are not as good of workers because things have come easy for them and they can't handle struggling to make things work. Don't give up. You have Other options to explore.

    Agreed. Grades are not the be all and end all. Your grades will probably smooth out and even if they don't, there are other ways to go and routes in life besides suicide.

    Please, do not give a **** about peoples "GPA".

    It means NOTHING. It is so easy to get a perfect GPA especially in high school it is pathetic. The only way to not have a 4.0 is to not do your homework.

    I was crushed with depression in high school, and to this day still am. That was the only reason I graduated with a B-, a year early, and I FAILED 9TH GRADE to top it off.

    Just because you don't get good grades doesn't mean you're not smart. Most of the assholes I knew in high school were so stupid I wouldn't trust them to shine my shoes or cut my hair yet most of them went on to state Universities.

    Grades are so overrated. School is just another business. It's all about the money from K through college.

    I used to be very concerned about my grades. I remember when I bombed my final exam in World Government (didn't answer an essay question, stupid mistake) and pulled a C for the semester. I was absolutely crushed.

    In the end, it didn't matter. I still graduated. Still got a job. Looking back, if I could have done things differently, I wouldn't have given such a shit about grades! I still graduated, still got my job, the only thing worrying about them really got me was a bunch of Friday nights stuck in the dorm instead of having fun and meeting people. Don't get me wrong, grades are important, but so is socialization.

    Granted, I wasn't an engineering major. I was in political science (oxymoron if you've ever heard one . . . ). But engineering is a hard subject that's in great demand. One thing I've had to learn the hard way is that if you try to be the best at everything you're just going to be disappointed when you aren't perfect.

    The best advice that I can give is to always try your best, and to be satisfied with the effort your subsequent accomplishments . . . because they're yours and yours alone.

    I graduated with a 2.6 and I have somewhat of a career. Grades are over-rated.
