I'm taking calculus-based physics and I want to withdraw from the course to take non-calculus based physics next semester
I am a first year student with a 3.26 GPA and I am currently taking 17 credits. I am enrolled in General Physics I (calculus based), and I am having a really hard time in it. I spoke to my professor about it and he advised me to drop his course and take Physics I (non-calculus based) next semester. Add drop period is over and I would get a W in the course. Would it be better for me to take the non calc course and drop this one, knowing I would probably get an A in it compared to getting a C in this one? How bad will the W look on my record? The non calc course specifically says for pre-health majors in the description, could I make a case when applying to med school that I signed up for the wrong section?
