Super frustrated in school right now, because it's coming to something that I cannot control. I have 3 teammates that are supposed to help me with a group project, and with one week left before it's due, I have not heard back from any of them. I emailed them on the first day of class so we could stay ahead, and that was 3 weeks ago.

I also went back and looked at our first class assignment to see if they posted to the discussion board. I found two of my teammates did, but only one made a post that was thorough enough for full credit...

I have already spoken to the instructor about it, but he was unclear on what I should do. He has copies of every email I sent, so he knows I took initiative.

If I get a bad grade on this and it's not my fault for the bad grade, I'm gonna be super angry... I'm not working my ass off to lose my 3.93 GPA because of irresponsible classmates.

I can only hope that your instructor isn't an ass and grade you all poorly because only you did work. If he's a decent. understanding, and empathetic person he'll grade your other team mates badly and you'll get a good grade.

The same thing happened to me several times and at the end, where I hoped they did something it turned out they did nothing and I had to try to do it alone. My instructor didn't care at all that my other teammates did nothing and we all got a bad grade, that made me really angry and also super sad and my teammates even didn't care about the bad grade we got.

That really bites.
Well... in my case, if they do not help at all I'll be reporting them to the school advisors. Because I work my tail off for good grades, and if I fail because of something beyond my control... oh yeah I'm gonna raise hell.

Yeah, that's pretty understandable. I wish you good luck with it!

This right here has been one of my greatest problems with "team work" and I have certainly dealt with this before. Perhaps if you do all that you can, your instructor will grade you based on your portion of the work, given you have already voiced your concerns.
