I was taking total of 12 credit hours(3 classes) this quarter, but b/c of some family problems I didn't do well on 2 classes midterm and failed them. Now, if I keep the 2 classes, I will for sure end up with C or D. So, do you guys think I should keep the classes or drop the classes and save my gpa? Please, help me decide. I have already dropped a class last quarter and have gotten W for the grade. I know getting W will look bad on my transcript, but getting C or D will lower my gpa and also look bad. What should I do?:( Should I drop the classes?

probably drop them. what year are you? if you want in to a dschool you'll have to show that you can pull yourself up and out of this big time. starting next semester you'll need to be taking a good 15-18 credits until graduation AND do well to show you have what it takes. do you have time for that? and is dentistry what you really want?

i would consider saving your gpa... if you have to drop, try to drop one. not 2.. see if you could work really hard to bring one up and maybe drop the other...good luck, i hope you figure it out
