'W' on the transcript...

<p>I'm going to drop my Calculus III class because I'm most likely headed towards a D... A 'W' will be on my transcript(stands for withdrawl... don't know what its like at other college)... Will that have any effect on my chances? Also, I've heard that the undergrad major doesn't matter... would French be a bad major though?</p>

<p>Better than a D. Don't make it a habit.</p>

<p>Also, I'm changing my major from engineering to french so would that make a difference at all? I know my GPA will increase.</p>

<p>A W beats a D by any measure, but try to make it the only W you get. GPA increasing = good. If you're getting a D in calculus, leaving engineering is probably a smart move.</p>
