A student drops for various reasons..
It may be because he/she is not doing well in the course and he/she needs to evade the low grade for it might affect his/her GWA..
Or a terror professor is becoming too much of a headache..
It could also be due to lack of appetite for the chosen course..this is understandable..sometimes you’ve gone through a lot just to get into a course and then later on you suddenly realize that it isn’t actually worth the time..
Whichever is the reason, I still feel bad, or should I say “sad” whenever a student of mine drops..
I would always think about the time, the effort, the money and often the “slot” wasted…
And it’s even worse when a relatively good student drops…It lowers the energy..it slows down the adrenaline…
SO PLEASE DON’T DROP..EVEN IF ONCE IN A WHILE I TELL YOU TO DO SO..UNLESS I MYSELF PROVIDE YOU A “DROPPING SLIP”!
