I am taking an evolution course. We have 3 exams for it, including the final. On the first exam i used an option which didn't count my grade for the exam because I felt I wasn't ready for it (our professor gives us the option). But i recently had the second exam...and I feel i did poorly...the exam was wayyyy harder than the first. We are in week 8 (on a trimester system) and my final will be worth 50%. Can you guys please help me :( I would have to petition the withdraw because the last week to withdraw was week 6.


How bad will a withdraw look on my app? I am a sophmore...with an ok gpa already. Things just seem to be getting worse...

I'd say at least wait until you get your grade back. Even though you felt you did poorly, you could be pleasantly surprised.

As to withdrawing, it seems the SDN consensus is one W won't kill your application, just don't make it a habit.

arrite, depending on the grade i get on this exam...I will decide what to do?

I hope they won't deny it. The withdraw will have no effect on my GPA right? and how many credits is considered a full term usually? I don't want to lose financial aid...
