**SPECIAL NOTE: This is the time of year where people start to "let go" or "give up". Here's my advice:
DON'T!!!  You've worked too hard to:
1) fail this class (it happens) 2) not get your diploma (this also happens) 3) have a school withdraw their offer of admission and/or scholarship $$(yup, this one too). 
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE talk to me if you feel you are slipping into the "abyss of quitting".
