Withdrawals in Undergrad: Will they hurt you or help you?
Long story short, I'm a junior and struggling in a required course for my major. To be fair, it's a really difficult course, but I'm starting to question whether I'm fully prepared to take it on. I am considering withdrawing from it this summer and tackling it at a later date, but I am a little torn. I am considering some really competitive graduate programs now, and wouldn't you know it, some of the really competitive programs are the ones I want to get into the most! If I withdraw, will that hurt my chances, even if I take the same class again later, or is it better to stick it out even if my grade might really really suck?3 replies
