Impact of dropping a class 2nd semester senior year?
We have 3 days to decide whether my son should drop a class (AP Calc AB). If he drops it by friday, it will not show on his transcript. He had a B- for 1st semester on the transcripts that will go out to his colleges.
He is absolutely losing his mind.
What kind of impact would this have on his acceptances and or merit awards? I'm not worried about the impact of the B- but of the non-continuance.
I've a call into his GC but would love any input. While I am not remotely a fan of this idea (and my H likely to be far less so) I am very concerned about his state of mind and stress level. He is doing tutoring at school, does not want to do any beyond that (though of course we can make him). Depending on what path his coursework takes in college he may not need Calc.
