TheCrow Posted December 30, 2013 Share Posted December 30, 2013 I received a B+ in a graduate social science methods course that I took last semester (I'm an undergraduate). I had a high A average before the final exam, so I've e-mailed the instructor to ask what I received on the final exam (my final exam grade would have had to be almost 20 points lower than my average up to that point to have dropped me down to a B+). I'm not majoring in the social science field I took the graduate course in (in fact, I'm majoring in a quantitative field), but I hope to get a PhD in the field of the graduate course. Since I'm majoring in a quantitative field and the course was in a quantitative methods course, I'm concerned it will hurt me significantly in the admissions process. If it comes down to it, is it worth appealing the grade? Though I haven't seen the final exam, I do have concerns that I was assigned a really low grade on the final exam (to legitimate the low overall grade) because I'm an undergraduate. If it's relevant, the course instructor is not tenure track. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
