Hello, I'm currently a 100 non-scholarship cadet at my detachment, and I'm deathly worried about being kicked out of the program. My academics aren't exactly the best thing in the world, and I'm currently failing Chemistry. In fact, my grade is so low in that class that if I pass the final exam with a 100%, I will barely scratch the surface of a D-. I have an incredibly hard time keeping up with fast-paced classes, and when I fell behind for a couple days, it was all over for me. Chemistry is one of those classes where if you fall behind for one day, you're in hot water. My other classes, like Aerospace Studies, have good grades because it wasn't too fast-paced, was interactive, and was overall enjoyable to be a part of; it's only Chemistry that's causing me deep and emotional stress. I obtained my second conditional event recently because I "failed" my PFA, even though my score was enough to pass; I did not meet the minimum amount of push-ups. And I may soon obtain my third conditional event if I fail Chemistry. My detachment has a "three strikes and you're out" rule with the conditional events, though I am not entirely sure if it's an immediate and automatic "you're out" without a chance to explain yourself, or if they sit down to reason with you and offer solutions to stay in ROTC. By today, I plan to email my cadre instructor about my situation because I am so worried about being kicked out. ROTC life took a couple months to adjust, but I can easily say without hesitation that I love it. I can say that I am a good cadet overall, only that my time management skills continue to jeopardize my life and my career. I want to tell my instructor that I've utilized my academic resources, busted myself trying to study, and have done everything in my power in regards to my grade in chemistry. This ended up as more of a rant, but I do have questions that need to be addressed, such as being immediately kicked out versus having the chance to redeem myself. Thanks so much for your time.
