yoyo17 Posted July 7, 2015 Share Posted July 7, 2015 I'm currently a PhD student and I am enrolled in a summer class. The problem is that on the first day, I realized that I won't have time to meet other obligations (research/teaching) while taking the class. Also the class goes over advanced material that I'm currently not prepared for but with time I can easily handle. It's just right now there's a lot on my plate. So I'm wondering what are the repercussions of withdrawing from the course and having a W on my transcript, preserved forever in my student record. Is it really bad in terms of graduating from grad school? How do fellowship application comittees or employers look at a W? What are the adverse consequences? Need a decision, soon, only have until 7/8 to make final decision but would like to hear the bad things that might happen even if responses come late. Thanks!
