The world does not end because you failed a class! Don’t let anyone tell you different. You make the final decision of whether a certain major or career path is “for you”. Not some silly GPA, not a hating-a** professor, and certainly not anyone who doesn’t have a complete understanding of your situation. Grades aren’t always great indicators that you understand a subject. Mental health, family, finances and other extenuating circumstances all play a part. If you failed a class and you’re worried about how it will look on your graduate school application, take a look at the tips on my forum: https://www.naiabutlercraig.com/forum/welcome-to-the-forum/quick-tips-grad-school-applications I can only speak for what works for me but I do not personally believe a failed class (1,2 or 3) have to be the end of your passion and story.
