I'm going to drop a class for a W very soon. The online request for enrollment exception requires me to write in a justification. This is my first quarter at the school (besides summer) and I haven't done this before. To students who've successfully withdrawn from classes before, is "failing the class and unlikely to be able to improve grade to passing" a good enough justification?
A relevant detail to give you since the request is sent to the dean of my major (I think) is that this is an ICS class and I'm an ICS major, so if you've withdrawn from a course before as an ICS major then I really would like your feedback.
In case you're wondering, I don't have any excuses along the lines of "a death in the family forced me to get a full-time job in addition going to school." Any help would be greatly appreciated, since getting my request denied would put me in a serious pile of doodoo and I want to avoid that at all costs.
