Hi all!

I am currently enrolled in classes at UTA as part of a DIY post-bacc. One of which is Toxicology. After reading the syllabus, I found out that its focus is environmental toxicology. For some reason, I was thinking it was more geared toward human physiology.

At this point, I can still drop and switch for a different course but the drop will show on my transcript.I am just nervous that after being out of school for so long (Graduated in 2015) they might be wary of seeing a a drop as one of the first courses.

Will this have any effect on my application?

A single W will not have an impact on your application - drop the class and take the class you want.
