Here's the deal:
I'm taking a Corporate Finance class. It's destroying me. I've got a 65%, a D, in this class. First D ever. Not psyched about it, but what's done is done. I'm already enrolled in the same course this summer to replace the grade. This semester's grade will be on my transcript, but won't count towards my GPA after the retake.
Here's the question:
Do I bust ass and attempt to hold on to my D, or do I just say screw it and let it drop to an F? I'm retaking it anyway.
What say tBB?
Can you withdraw or take an incomplete?

Too late on the Withdraw, no idea on the incomplete. Frankly, I've never heard of 'taking' an incomplete. Just heard of professors giving them when a student doesn't do a major assignment or something.
I'm sorry, I don't have any experience with either. I'm just spitballin' here.
Might as well just keep going to class so you'll get an idea of what the final exam will be like.
Make the D just in case...its easier to avg a D than an F
This. Take it from a guy that replaced his fair share of classes with summer grades. You can only help yourself by continuing to go, it will make the summer course that much easier.
Also, look at the tests differently. Worry more about membering the contents of the tests when you take them, so you'll be ready when you retake them this summer.
Also, bang as many chicks as you can. If it means getting less drunk to close deals, do it. Just bang as much as possible.
Is it the same professor? A lot of professors are pretty understanding about scenarios like these, especially if you intend to retake the class. I'd go to his office hours and see if he would perhaps give you an incomplete and allow the grade you receive upon retaking it to be your actual grade. Also policies about this kind of stuff vary from college to college.
Different professor. The summer course is far more geared to a non-finance major like myself than the professor I'm with now.
Well one of my sophomore courses I had to retake, actually dropped it 3 sessions in. I ended up taking it 4 different times with four different professors before I found one that wasn't a total idiot

Or just become better at closing the deal while just as drunk...
But finish out the class BTBR. That way you may be able to pull out a high D or low C and you know the class from beginning to end
Best advice I have ever heard given to a college kid. Hands down.
any information you can take in twice, you will retain better

**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
This. If you keep going id think you would be better off when u retake it.
If you are going to retake it and it won't count just fvck this semester enjoy a little break
That's what may is for
I suggest taking the final and then immediately going to the registrar's office to see if they will allow you to count it as a transcript drop, incomplete, or withdrawal. I especially recommend this if you are taking the same professor this summer.
