    I am contemplating whether or not to drop my physics 123 (electricity/magnetism, circuits etc.)? I would get a W on my transcript, so I'm wondering what you guys think? I am feeling completely lost in that class right now and I dunno if I should just try to take it over again some other time?

    sit down; relax. open beer; enjoy. it's not the end of the world, and it will be perfectly fine. just take the W like a man, and retake the class. you're opening up a can of worms with this question because some guy with a 4.90877979789 gpa will get on this thread and talk about how "inferior" anything below an A++++++++ is (see the C's in prereq's thread). other than that...just relax. =)

    Not even close to those words. I said 3.0. That's not a 4.0, not a 3.8, not a 3.5 or even a 3.2. I said 3.0, a B average. Please don't misrepresent what I said.

    i got a W in calculus based physics when i applied. but i still got accepted to all the schools i applied. if your interview is open-file (they have the transcripts in front of them), then they will ask you why you dropped physics. i told them i was taking the physics major physics. some bad advising there. :scared:

    Your comments weren't aimed at me? Then they must have been aimed at the approximately two other people here who think there should be academic standards for admission to optometry school. And please, grow up. No doctor (or asiring doctor) should be posting things that childish. Its like having an argument with a four year old.

    Nope, not angry. Just frustrated and disappointed that a future doctor like yourself can't keep from saying things like "go take care of your butt, I think its getting hurt".
