My vote goes to Stay Out of My Path by /u/MindInTheClouds, it was the one I most enjoyed reading.

As an aside, I want to say I'm very happy I made it to this round of the contest. It's a pleasant surprise since I basically decided to join at the last minute and rushed out an entry on the day of the deadline. This is officially my excuse for any poor editing on my part :D

I'm fairly new to this sub, so IDK how often contests like these are held, but I look forward to participating in the next one (and I'll try to start earlier next time!). I've already learned a lot, and I'd like to say thanks to everyone who read my entry and who voted for me and gave me feedback, it's been great :D

This happened to me back in the late 90s. I think I passed even less than 23 units :p Yes, you will be in probation for one sem. I don't remember if I wrote a letter of appeal, but it shouldn't be too hard if you need to, just promise to focus more on your studies and to do better (and you really should! Engg won't give you another chance)

I suggest you talk to your adviser before following any advice from this thread.

150k isn't a lot, it can vanish in an instant if you're not careful. Put your money in a savings account first, you'll need it as a buffer for emergency expenses. You only have a year of college left, prioritize finishing that, then look for a decent job.

Try to track your expenses, don't spend too much on unnecessary things until you have stable income. If you have time, take on some part-time work while finishing your studies.
