    Withdrawing from Medical School - Any advice on what to do next?

    Hello everyone, I was just notified that my recommendation for dismissal due to unsatisfactory academic progress in my 1.5 years as a medical student has been upheld by the Dean. I have the opportunity to withdraw, rather than have a dismissal on my file. I just wanted to know if anyone has...

    Hello everyone, I was accepted to my second choice optometry college in early October, and I put the deposit down within two weeks and was very happy (albeit somewhat disappointed, I'll admit) with the choice. However, I heard back from my top choice (SUNY) that had put me on-hold, and Santa...

    Withdrawing or taking a C in a lab

    I don't want to beat a dead horse here, but I feel like this is a different situation than someone withdrawing from a 3-4 credit hour lecture.
