Pass Failing a non science Course

Asked 9 months ago by Guest (120 points)

I know this may seem like a very odd question...I go to a private libral arts school which requires you to take a semester of fine arts. To be completely honest im not the artistic type and im worried that this course may put a dent on my steady GPA since its a 3 credit class. My school offers a Pass/Fail option for once class every year so that it wont affect my GPA in the long run, and I recieve the credit it just shows up as a P on my transcripts. However ive been told different things about med school admissions with the Pass/Fail option. Keep in mind ive never used one of these before, any thoughts?

Why are you interested in taking a course pass/fail?  I don't think it would count towards your GPA calculation, but you shoulfd check with admissions staff.
