    Exclamation How bad does it look when you drop a class?

    so you drop a class and there is a "W" on the transcript or whatever, for "withdrawl"

    how bad does that look?

    I signed up for this really stupid class where I'm supposed to read several assigned books, like a biography on Rosa Parks. I pretty much refuse to read that sh!t. Thinking of dropping the class. I'm going to transfer in the fall (currently at community college) and I'm wondering if dropping a class makes me look like a retard

    so far my GPA is like a 3.5
    GPA in high school was a 3.6
    scored a 30 on the ACT in high school


    cliffs
    -can I get away with dropping this class and still transfer in the fall no problem?

    I dont know 1 company that gives a rats ass if you dropped a few classes. Then again most don't even look at that crap. They just background check your degree and a few ask for transcripts to confirm GPA (IT/Engineers).

    Yeah a W doesn't look that bad. I never did it but My friends did. It wont look horrible because there are many reasons why people do that not just because they are doing bad. Also Senior year you will have A LOT of free time and you can always make it up and have it off your transcript. Same if you Fail a class just retake it.

    Wouldn't matter unless you go to a top notch school, which isnt happening. Transfers generally have guaranteed acceptance depending on loc/school.. but your typical University would not care. They only care about your GPA and pre-reqs being met. For example to transfer to a UC you'd need a 3.0+ GPA, 60+ units, and certain courses completed that the schools' major requires you to take before transferring as an entering Junior.

    Ok if you plan on not going to grad school it really doesnt matter 2 ****s if you have a W on your transcript and employers really dont care since you got the degree anyways.

    As far as grads schools go, they care a little more and certainly having more than a couple of W's would raise questions and possibly reflect negatively on you. Same goes with transferring. Just dont Withdraw from classes unless you absolutely have to, and I dont know about your school but at mine if you withdraw really late into the semester the class will carry a Withdrawal/fail grade so that will impact your gpa.

    Im not sure that is what he is referring to as add drop in most Uni's in the united states has ended by now, and dropping a class at this point will carry a W. if by any chance the OP is in Australia or something where their semester just started then dropping a class in the add drop period does not show up on your transcript at all and there is literally no record of it at all, thats the point off an add drop period to adjust your schedule etc.

    ITT: People all give advice from their college/university.

    Truth is, every institution has a different set of rules. Don't ask the misc, go ask a counselor.

    how bad does that look?

    I signed up for this really stupid class where I'm supposed to read several assigned books, like a biography on Rosa Parks. I pretty much refuse to read that sh!t. Thinking of dropping the class. I'm going to transfer in the fall (currently at community college) and I'm wondering if dropping a class makes me look like a retard

    so far my GPA is like a 3.5
    GPA in high school was a 3.6
    scored a 30 on the ACT in high school


    cliffs
    -can I get away with dropping this class and still transfer in the fall no problem?
    You'll be fine. Less then four overall withdrawals doesn't matter.
