wokeem Posted February 15, 2014 Share Posted February 15, 2014 I was wondering if anyone had some thoughts on whether or not it's a bad idea to withdraw from a few classes your last semester before grad school. I was recently accepted to two of my top-choice graduate programs (hurrah!). My acceptance was, as I understand at this point, only conditional regarding my actually graduating at the end of this semester. I am very much on track to do so, however, I am a triple major and have grown really tired of my last unfinished area of study. Note, this is not the area I am going into for my PhD. At this point I'm very much tempted to withdraw from the two classes I'm currently taking that would finish my major. Beyond preparing for grad. school and making all of the requisite visits to campus, I am working on an honors thesis in which I am very much invested, and I am trying to pick up extra hours at work to save up for the fall. These classes are really just serving as distractions at this point and I'd really just as soon get a W for them and not have to deal with the additional stress in what is, already, a fairly stressful time. Of course, in my personal statements to these programs I discussed my triple-major, and they're certainly going to see two Ws on my transcript if I follow through with this. Would I have any cause for concern that this could spark some sort of revoked acceptance? I plan on switching it to a minor, so I would have a two majors, one with honors, and a minor in the field I'd be abandoning. Also, I have emailed my thesis supervisor to get her advice on this matter and am waiting for a reply on that front. I'm just interested in taking in as many perspectives on this as possible. Not sure if this would matter, but I'd remain in two other classes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
