I am a first year college student and a bit unsure of how the system works. In the fall semester I completed bio 1, which I received a B in. Okay well, I was late on registering for classes for this spring semester which resulted in a majority of my intended courses being full. Bear with me guys, it gets hazy here so just bear with me. I ended up re-registering for the same exact course (BSC 1010) in hopes that I would bring it up to an A. Its not looking that way anymore. In fact, it looks like I'm aiming for a C at this point due to me being ill the first two weeks of school (hospitalized with the flu). My bio professor can't seem to understand where I'm coming from. She gave me F's on all my weekly assignments/quizzes and deducted participation points from the days that I missed even though they are excused absences. I tried to plead with her during her office hours this morning but to no success. This woman is ice cold and told me that she would fail me if I missed one more class. These are currently the terms that I'm standing on with this course and it's only week 5. So my question is, how do I explain a W in a potential interview if I withdrawal from a course that I have already completed because I wouldn't blame them for being confused. Tough luck I guess.

right now my GPA is 3.33 and cumm. is 3.67

So... you are retaking a course you got a B in, hoping you'll get an A, but all you can aim for is a C? So much for an effective bargain... This is a good example as to never retake a course where you got a C+ or higher. Unfortunately, you're at a disadvantage. The purpose of a retake is to do well on the 2nd try (i.e. get an A). It sounds like you're going to get a C or a W, which is essentially retroactive. Just withdraw and take another course, but you're probably in a pickle when you have to explain yourself.
