hey, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I was just at an exam where I fucked up immensely on an easy test because I misread the question. This is a class that's not curved, and because of this exam, the highest grade I could get in the class is a 85 which equates to a B (although based on the ease of the course, I could very well get this score)
I'm just wondering if it's worth withdrawing from this class as a result because of the effect it might have on my cumulative GPA (which is high enough to be dropped a fair number by a B or B- in this class). This was supposed to be my "easy A" that was going to buffer the harder finance and math classes I'm taking this semester and I fucked up. I'm still reeling from how badly I did, so maybe I'll come to my senses later, but the reason I think I should get a W is
- I'm in Wharton, I don't really need an MBA or any other graduate degree
- Most job applications just want to see your GPA on your resume, not your transcript. Since a W doesn't affect my GPA, it might be better for my cumulative to withdraw.
What do you guys think???
