College said it was fine; now they're unhappy.

Alright so. Graduating senior here. No AP's offered at my school. I take CC courses to get credit where I may have missed out for not having APs.

April: I had to drop an extracurricular CC course because of mandatory HS presentations. I would have missed more than two classes; that results in a drop-fail. I withdrew to avoid that. My class syllabuses are not handed out at the beginning of the year, so I was unable to predict this.

Admissions Officer said I was fine.

May: I let my college know that I had failed an extracurricular course (CC) and asked them what I should do in order to keep my acceptance. I offered to retake it online or at a CC. I did not fail this because I was lazy; I took a course considered difficult for me and could not find help on the campus. Their assistance isn't the best, let me tell you. Never had I studied my butt off so hard before. Also, tenure teachers. Aww.

Admissions Officer said I was fine again. She even encouraged me to take different CC courses in the summer. I decided not to retake that course because it's not necessary for my majors.


June: Admissions Officer said she misinformed me. They wanna know what happened to these classes and I am up for being revoked.


Uh, I wrote my letter of explanation... but is there anything I can do besides that? I did what they told me to do: inform them about dropping a class and a failing grade. They did point out that they made a mistake ("misinformed me").

    "I had to drop an extracurricular CC course because of mandatory HS presentations. I would have missed more than two classes; that results in a drop-fail. I withdrew to avoid that."

    Did you withdraw, which means a W is recorded on that transcript, or did you actually fail, which means that an F is recorded? There is a GIGANTIC difference between a W and an F.

    If this is a W, then that is what you need to let the admissions officer know. If it is an F, then there probably is nothing that you can do at this point.

    @happymomof1
    It is a W. I told them that in April in a hand-written letter. The second problem (May) is an F. I explained that to them too.

    It's alright though, they came back to me after I had written another letter of explanation. My admission is fine!

    ... unless they made a second mistake. I certainly hope not.
