* The 4.0 Story: The benefit of having a website is getting to explain things in more detail.  This grade point average should have been a solid 4.0.  I made one A- which threw off my entire GPA.  The reason I got an A- is because my professor in my Critical Thinking Class did not like my answer to the Trolley Question and subsequent explanation.

The Trolley Question is a thought experiment in ethics.” Wikipedia. My take on the situation was to do NOTHING.  I explained it in great detail, just like the other students did with their essays.  My teacher just didn’t like my answer and subsequently felt I did not deserve an A in the class because of my ONE ESSAY.  I literally made straight A’s across the board for the entire courseload completed at the University of LaVerne.
