hey all, you know how when you apply to things like pharmacy schools, they ask that you list ALL the colleges you've ever been to and or all the courses you've taken? Would we have to do such a thing at all after we get into pharmacy school (i.e. for scholarships)?

The reason why I ask is I signed up to take this Interpersonal Communication class that is being offered kinda faraway at a Community College because it is a required for the University of Southern CA. Now that I got into UCSD and no longer want to go to USC, I don't want to spend 3 hours in this class (b/c it is so faraway, it's about 4.5 hours each week including traffic...which is a huge chunk of my time...not to mention I had to give up volunteering with the homeless that I really enjoyed b/c both the class and this volunteering occur at the same time). However, I got my UCSD acceptance letter way after the "drop deadline w/o a W on transcript." Is it okay if I just not show up or even just drop it WITH a W on that transcript so that I can go work with the homeless? It would never show up on my Berkeley transcript and no one would ever have to know about it unless somewhere far down the future I need to report every single college course I have taken and or all the colleges I have been to and I don't want an "F" or "W" to haunt me in the future.

Drop it with a W and just explain your reasons. You will need to provide transcripts after you've started pharmacy school if you apply for certain types of scholarships. The scholarship program I applied to required transcripts from ALL universities I had attended prior to pharmacy school in addition to my pharmacy school transcripts.
