Hi. I need some advice. I was accepted to dental school and have already graduated, but am taking another class that is not required (but recommended). I did not do well on the first test and wanted to know if I should just withdraw from the class. Is this allowed or am I required to finish the class? Will the "W" hurt me? Thanks.

I am in a similar circumstance, I called the dean of admissions and asked if it would be a problem. I was told it wasn't a big deal. Its in Spanish 3 and I suck at lanquages, I am getting all A's and a D right now it really sucks. If I take it during the summer I can definately do much better. Its just hard to write a thesis, do research, write a manuscript and take two upper division science classes, along with a lanquage.

I would take the w. But you might want to call to make sure that it would be ok.

Take the "w", since you already have all the prerequisites done.

I would call and tell them that you are currently taking a class that is not required for your degree or for dental school. Then tell them you want to withdraw from the class so that you can start working to save money for next year. I'm sure they'll understand. I would not tell them that you are not doing so hot int he class though.
