I would have to get almost perfect on the final to even consider the A- range. It will count as a withdrawl. My GPA isnt stellar but since Orgo is a pre-req I dont want to already discertain my chances as low as they might be. My final is on the 21st and my base for orgo is pretty weak. I failed the 1st midterm. So...
Suggestions? Withdraw or just put in 8-10hr days for the next week until my final.
Put in the time to improve. 8-10 hours a day might lead to burn out. Shoot for 4-6 with a 30 minute break each hour. Don't withdraw. A W is worse than one B- (it could obscure an F), especially in organic chemistry.
