Please Help: Rescindment from UCLA?

Hi everyone I have a problem and was wondering if anyone would help me.

I recently got accepted to UCLA, (to my disbelief).
I was very excited because I didn't think I would get accepted in the first place.
But my happiness was short lived.

Recently, I have come to the senses that neither UCLA nor UCSD would accept me (Low Sat Score 1700s) , so I had planned on going to a CC and hopefully transferring from there to a school like UCLA or USC. Knowing this I decided to drop my Drama, AP Biology and AP Calculus class ( I was struggling with AP Calculus), in hope of finding a job and being able to pay for CC myself, but in this economy I was unsuccessful, so I have been working at my dad's buisness (Small Store) since the economy has gone into a rescission business hasn't been so good, so I've been working one of the old worker's shifts. I was just wondering when I report the change to my classes to UCLA would they attempt to void my acceptance? I have never gotten a C or lower, and my GPA is probably a 3.95- 4.1 (just estimating) I still retained 4 classes my schedule is as follow:

Spanish 3
AP Government
AP Literature
Service (Teacher's Assistant)

The reason I have home periods is because I couldn't find a job in time to get Work Experience. My I have A's in my APs and an A or B in Spanish 3

My Grade for my 1st semester was as follow:

Spanish 3: B
AP Government: A
AP Literature: A
AP Biology: A
AP Calculus: B (Barely)
Drama: B (Confusion?)

What should I do?
Thank you very much for any help you could provide or advice.

    If you still want to attend UCLA, you should probably write/call them as soon as you can and explain your class changes. If you don't and simply send in your final transcript, they'll probably notice it. You're obligated to report them. (Don't think the UCs really care about senior year though - I think they just look at how difficult your load is, and don't see your grades until after your senior year is over.)

    Just tell them the truth and hope for the best, then. Good luck! :P
