Explain the “C” on your transcript in this Biology class

I would attribute it to two factors:
1) study techniques. In high school, studying was never an issue because tests covered far less material than the typical two-midterm college course. As a freshman in college, I experimented with many different study techniques to fit my unique learning style. Through a lot of trial and error, I finally discovered that I absorb information best through the use of flashcards. Unfortunately, I did not make that discovery until the very end of freshman year. However, as soon I did, my grades immediately rebounded --> I received straight A’s in my next ten or so courses
2) my heart wasn’t in it. I did well in Biology in high school and had an interest in the pre-med program, but I quickly realized that it wasn’t for me. Although there were certainly topics in Microbiology that fascinated me, there were many aspects of the course that did not fit well with my interests or personality. For example, I was not interested in the heavy amount of lab work that was required. I found it to be very solitary and did not play well with my outgoing and collaborative nature. For many of these reasons, my heart simply wasn’t in it; it was not my passion
