Failed out first year university. How to get back on track?
I'm attending McMaster and my GPA is going to fall around ~2.95, which is about 0.05 below the cutoff in order to continue at the school. I'm going to be kicked out.
I was in a social sciences program and was foolish enough to think that it would be business oriented to some degree, but it ended up just being a bunch of elective courses and then 2 economics courses. All of the good electives were full and I was left with a bunch of courses that I just didn't care for so I ended up skipping a lot. I lost pretty much all of my interest in the program and my marks reflect it.
I really want to get into a business degree program at another university. I understand that this is going to be hard, having just flunked out of my current program.
What I am wondering is, what are the best steps I can take in order to get back on track?
I'm looking to attend Ryerson mainly.
Should I go to college for a year and try to boost my GPA and then apply?
Should I take open courses at Ryerson and then apply next year?
I'm lost as to what to do now, any insight appreciated.
