Want to drop class..

Alright so since the admissions office is closed, I figured I'll ask here.

I want to drop a class. Not a core class, just an elective. Specifically, an intro to engineering course.

Does Princeton tolerate dropping classes? I'll call to confirm, but I'd like to know of anyone has experiences with it

    Is this a year long class?

    Yes it is. I would end up with a W (withdraw) on my transcript.

    Have you already been accepted?

    Regardless, CALL PRINCETON or email them. They'll tell you if they think it'll impact your application (or, if you're accepted, how they feel about it). My senior year, I wanted to switch Spanish III for AP English and they "strongly discouraged" it, so...I didn't.

    I have already committed.

    I'm not considering dropping due to difficulty. I just have issues with the teacher. It's a college credit civil engineering course (project lead the way anyone?) yet the class average is 99.4%.

    My brain is decaying by the very day.....And the biggest insult is that I can't do hw in the class

    Yay for having committed! :) I doubt you'll have much of an issue then. Nevertheless, it's probably best to confirm it with Princeton before dropping, but I really, really doubt they'll protest.

    And oh, high school....back when I got all of my naptime during class. :)
