Withdrawing from a class with a W

Postby Connelly » Fri Jan 22, 2010 7:28 pm

Has anybody ever withdrawn from a class in law school? Is it a scarlet letter? We've only had one class, but we're past the normal drop/add date. I'm a PT student, and I think it might be good to scale it back a little this semester, since it is my last semester with 1L courses. Currently at 11 hours going 4 nights a week. I'd like to drop the 3 hour elective I'm taking, as it is looking extremely intensive. Work is kicking up to 50+ hours a week.

There is also a chance I'm being a pansy about this.

Um, I assume you have already attempted this, but just in case...have you plead your case to the registrar? No idea about W's sorry.

So, I guess you decided not to drop, eh? <outed!> 8)

Haha, actually I am leaning towards doing so now. We have until spring break to do it. I just sit there sometimes thinking, "I really don't like this material at all." Which is odd, because I've loved about every class I've taken so far. It doesn't help that students in the class are giving part of the lectures. :lol:
