Urgent! Dropping major after interview [#permalink]

New post 28 Apr 2009, 22:44
I'm a college senior with double major in Engineering and Economics

I interviewed for a top 5 school, however I have not received the decisions yet (will come out next few weeks)

However I am doing extremely bad in my economics major, and since it is my last quarter I really want to drop it and just do engineering major and economics minor

Throughout the interview/application process I was considered as a Double Major

Can they take back the admissions decision if once they receive official transcripts they see that I have become a economics minor?

Thanks!!!

I would tell them about the change in majors. Since the official transcript is what they use to verify what you've reported in terms of grades and majors, it could appear that you lied on the application if you don't tell them about the change.

Since they'll have your transcript they'll see your grades in economics anyway, so it's not like telling them you're dropping the major would let them know you're doing badly in economics.

There is soo many things wrong with this statement. You are doing better in Engineering then Economics??? You're gonna drop your 2nd major on your last quarter?? Are you serious? are you on crack?

But in all seriousness, I would believe there is a high chance that they can pull your offer, since 1) if you do notify them, you are telling them that you're basicly doing poorly in class the last quarter before matriculation, reason to question your ability in bschool. 2) if you don't notify them, when they recieve your transcipts they will think you lied.


I would just finish your classes. Even if you pull of the lowest passing grade, it will still give you a double major on your degree and going into Bschool will wash away the affect of your bad grades.

GB has a good point, sometimes just ride it through. Duel major looks good in your future resume. You don't always have to list UG gpa. :)
