Have an F on a summer class from an art school... What to do??
So about three summers ago I went on a art history trip to france through an art school. Since my school was not going to accept the credits I went on the trip as a way to learn about another country and did not fulfill one requirement that needed to be done after the trip was over. Today I called the school to find out that they gave me an F on the course.
What is the best way to approach this situation if I cannot get the grade changed? Obviously this doesnt show up on my transcript but I need to submit all transcripts from all schools. So i will have my science transcript with good grades and a random transcript from an art school with an F.
My original plan was to write about this as a summer trip through the art school in my activities section of AMCAS. In fact one of my letters of recommendation is from the director of art history from the school who was on the trip.
A random adviser recommended that I address it in my personal statement, however I honestly would rather avoid wasting space on a class that is not imperative for my admission into medical school, such as a prereq. Would it be okay to explain the situation under my description of the trip in the activities section? And then further in the secondaries?
