To Withdraw or Not to Withdraw
As many of my friends may know, I am transferring out of Loyola after this semester. The first year of college makes or breaks your GPA, and I just can’t risk receiving a bad grade for any of my classes. As a result, I’ve been studying extremely hard, but for one class, studying just does not seem to help. Microeconomics. For me, it’s one of those classes where no matter how much or how long I study, I will never understand its concepts. My first test grade in that class was less than satisfactory. Now, I’m beginning to ask myself if it’s worth staying in this class if my GPA is just going to suffer. I had sent in my midterm grade reports to the schools I’m applying to, but how would they feel seeing a “W”? Should I withdraw and get a W on my transcript or continue with the class with hope for the best?
