Email to a department at LaGuardia Community College respectfully challenging my grade.



More important than anything, I treat everyone at CUNY with the utmost respect at all times. I believe my performance in the class warranted an A. I respect everyone’s decision. I would like to challenge my A-. 

For the record, my GPA at LaGuardia Community College is 3.975. 11 As and 1 A-. Regardless if I get my way or not, I loved the class, and I think the professor is a great teacher. I merely disagree with the decision.

The same applies to everyone in the department. I respect your decision, I respect everyone in the department and I love CUNY. 

  • I turned in every assignment on time or early. 
  • I earned 100 on both quizzes. 
  • I participated via the chat during classes and emails with the professor. 
  • In my humble opinion, my term paper was good as was my presentation. 
  • I have a video recording of my presentation.

I’m happy with the A-. I would like to challenge it because I believe I deserve an A. I respect whatever decision you make. Please let me know what additional information you require from me. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
