    Withdrawal Etiquette

    Should I withdraw or get my **** together?

    Ok so I did relatively well first quarter of ochem (A), but this quarter, my midterm score is reaching around a C when curved (barely 50th percentile.) NMR/IR just doesn't make sense to me at times, with all that coupling/peaks confusing the **** out of me. Mechanisms and rearrangements such as...

    Getting better at Math

    Hi! Math has always been a bit challenging for me and I've been doing well until recently. I dropped my Pre-Calculus 2 class because I could tell I was failing and I had no chance to raise my grade since the class is only 3 months long. As a consequence of that I need to drop the Calculus I had...

    Waitlist after April 30th?

    Hello everyone, I’ve been accepted into 1 school & waitlisted in the other. Do I need to withdraw from the waitlisted school by April 30th? On another note, would it be wise to add waitlisted school on fafsa or wait until there’s acceptance in hand?

    Withdraw or retake ochem 2 over the summer?

    hi everyone, I just got a pretty devestating grade back - I’m not doing so well in ochem 2 this semester. I got a 68 and 44 on the exams so far. It seems like no matter how hard I study, a lot of the questions on the exam are so foreign to me. That fact that I’m taking several other hard...

    C in Orgo 2 or W?

    Just took the 2nd midterm exam and I think I did really poorly. I got a C in Orgo 1 as well, (being lazy, partying, trying to cram etc.), but I wanted to know if taking the W is better than having 2 C's. (No other C's in any other classes). Currently in the class I can only miss 170 more...

    How does a 3rd W on my transcript look?

    Hello all! I'm just curious as to how a third W on a transcript looks to med schools. My first W was in a history class and the reason I dropped this one is because our professor (to put it lightly) flat out lied about his midterms. I should have dropped after the first midterm so I could have...
