This question already has an answer here:
So, I'm currently an upcoming sophomore in undergrad and my grades during freshman year weren't the best. I got a F during my second semester which gave me an overall freshman GPA of 2.9
I'm not too worried about the GPA since I still have time to improve it. However, the F on the transcript is really stressing me out. As of now, my school says I cannot retake and replace the F on the transcript.
Even if I increase my GPA to at least a 3.7 but still have 1 F on my transcript, how badly will if affect my chances of getting into a good grad school or getting internships?
