Other posts include GPA-boosting courses, re-scheduling exams, course challenges, and the absolute deadline for assignments.


A prospective student wonders if it’s better to attempt one course per month for three months, or tackle three simultaneously.  Meanwhile, another student is still waiting to hear back on a months-old financial aid request; responses include some suggestions for who to contact.
