I am a first year college student at a junior college. For my first semester I am in danger of getting a C in my chemistry class. Since I need this class for my major preparation before transfer, should I drop the class since I know I'm going to get a C and get a Withdrawal or should I stay in the class and recieve a D or an F and do an academic renewal? Either way I have to repeat the class because I heard that you can't get a C in any of your major preparatory classes when transferring to a UC and I really want to go to Cal or UCLA. What should I do? And is it true that I can't transfer with a C?
