So if im a senior and already applied to Cornell, and I want to drop 7th period track, would i have to somehow notify cornell that i was doing so? maybe it was a different school, but i remember hearing something about how you had to send something to them letting them know you changed your schedule....

    It was in the Cornell letter that you needed to inform them of any changes in your schedule. I doubt that dropping track is a problem for them (they are probably most concerned about academic classes) but you should probably just check with them anyway.

    Sorry, this was in the acceptance letter for ED candidates--were you accepted ED or applying for RD?
  • rch855rch855 Registered User Posts: 80 Junior Member

    i called them and they said even dropping an academic class that doesn't pertain to your major is fine. [as long as it's not something like english or something] but if it's a government or social science class, they don't care if you are majoring in science.
    I e-mailed the admissions office of my major and got a reply. They say it's okay, but I wanted a "paper trail" so to speak

    So they really won't care if it's not related to your major? i've been suffering through AP Government for so long! i wanted to drop it but i didn't because i thought it would look bad and i wouldn't get accepted. (RD, envi sci)

    yeah. so i emailed the hotel school, and they asked what class i would be taking in its place? our school doesn't really let us add classes on second semester and...i have no other math class to take. how do you guys think I should reply? THANKS! =]
  • yousonofatreeyousonofatree Registered User Posts: 1,358 Senior Member
    are you planning to take another math class at De Anza by any chance? Maybe you could do that...like..."intro to stats"? or "calc for social sciences"
