Dear Columbia students taking more than twenty credits:
It’s not worth it. All six of those classes may seem interesting now, but just think of how exhausted you’ll be in a few weeks when midterms season hits and you have three exams, two papers, and a presentation all within five days of each other.
Today is the last day to add or drop a class without being charged a withdrawal fee. In other words, it’s the last day of shopping period. Or in other words, whether your version of being overburdened is three upper-level seminars, more than one STEM class in the same semester, or even just more than four classes, this is your last chance to save yourself.
So, what are you waiting for? Get on SSOL or MyBarnard, select that one class causing you grief, and drop that shit. You’ll thank us in a couple of months.
Update, 5:30 pm: An earlier version of this post stated that today is simply the last day to add or drop a class; actually, today is the last day to add classes, the last day to drop core classes, and the last day to drop any other class without being charged a withdrawal fee. We apologize for any confusion.
