Hi Guys,

Sorry about asking this question again, but my dilemma is since I didn't plan this into my schedule, if I drop this class then I can't take TWO of the classes I'm already signed up for next quarter (for which this class is a prerequisite). Which would give me only 2 classes next quarter as well as mess up graduation plans.
There's only a final left, and it is worth a lot, but this is one of those classes where the professor gives wild problems on the tests, so the test averages are somewhere around 30%. I have been beating the average (which is a C) but only by a tiny bit.

Since it is a required science class, should I take the final (no more chance to withdraw) and hope for the best, maybe get a C+?
How is it viewed if I get a C and take it again? I'm pretty sure with any other professor I'd get an A.

Thanks

don't withdraw, just take the C+, its not that big of a deal, if u have to retake it again do it later, dont set ur self back by withdrawing. its an easy decision here

quoted for mutha effin truth.

as it has been addressed time and time again, a single C is certainly not going to kill you, but if it's your 20th C you might be in a sticky situation.

I'd go with the C. A few Cs=not a huge deal. But messing up your graduation plans/spring schedule=much bigger deal.

take the C+. I had a recent interview where I mentioned my C in orgo-lab. The interviewer dismissed it with - "everyone gets that one"

Though not by much, a C+ is weighed higher than a C on the GPA scale, so definitely take the C+ over withdrawing.

Wow. 30% class average...sounds like my college physics class but at least my prof gave points for homework and there was a curve (upward).

I don't think one single C+ will kill you, but what is your overall GPA?

Overall GPA is 3.67 right now, science GPA is about the same.

Withdraw. I have one withdrawal on my transcript (also physics btw, but for a different reason), never was asked about it.

Hmmm... sounds like a tough decision, but I would say take the C since a withdrawal is going to mess up graduation. If you have time to take the class again then go for it. If not I don't think it'll hurt, especially if it's your only one. So far I haven't been asked about a C+ I've gotten at interviews. Good luck! :)
