Worried about dropping a course
I'm a student at St Edward's University in Austin, Texas. I would have posted this in our own sub forum, but I think we're too small to have one lol.
On to my question. I took 18 hours this semester, which I now realize was a mistake. Accounting is my hardest class this semester, and it runs until 6:15 P.M. I want to drop for two reasons, 1.) Because I'm doing very poorly in it, and 2.) I desperately need time to work and make money. I have a single parent and am paying for all of my expenses on my own, except health insurance because I have a rare disease.
My concern is that I want to go to grad school. Ideally I want to attend law school, but I realize for man people, possibly myself included, that dream never comes to fruition. Will having a W on my transcript severely impact my chances? I do not plan to have more than one W, and have never dropped a course before. This was a mistake on my part that I am doing my best to learn from it.
I was rejected from my dream university almost in February of 2016. I remember what that felt like, and I'm doing my best not to put myself through that experience again.
Thank you :)
