Hello! I am a senior that is currently taking Calc AB, and I am failing miserably. I’ve never gotten lower than an A- in a math class before and my average is currently an F. I’m going to speak with my teacher tomorrow, and he is likely going to tell me to drop the class. However, the way my schedule works out, the only other class that I could take that period is a study hall. I really want to avoid this because I don’t want colleges to see that I dropped math for a study hall on my mid year report.
However, I did apply early decision to a school and I find out the results on December 15. If I get accepted, I feel more willing to drop my math class because I’ll already have committed to college. And even if I don’t get in and have to send my transcripts to regular decision, what looks worse - dropping my math class or nearly failing it? My senioritis ridden heart is telling me to drop the class, but my head is telling me to try to pull out a C in the class. Any advice would be much appreciated - thank you so much!!
