Hi all,

I'm taking a 3 credit course in computer engineering and I am a biochemistry major. In the beginning of the semester, I thought I could handle it but it has become increasingly difficult and I haven't been able to keep up with it. I'm currently a second year and my GPA is 3.87 and science GPA is 3.75. Do you guys think I should drop or keep the C?

Thank you for your help

I would take the W. No one will care about a W in a non-prerequisite, but a C will affect your gpa

eh, one C wont kill anybody. It is non BCPM course. Do what you want, but if you get asked why you had a W in this this instead of just taking a C, have a good answer. Or just take the C and dont worry about it

I agree about taking the C - I have a C in physics II and gen chem II, and had 5 interviews. A W would look more like you tucked tail and ran to my eye.

I am biased, but you should take the W and still check out the class. Basic computer science and engineering is important for scientific research. You can make simple programs just with intro level knowledge.

Take the W, don't listen to some of these kids advising you to hurt your GPA.
