What academic question are you currently struggling with?

Should I take Bio 126 in the Spring (for my bio major plans), or continue with German 103 and not disrupt the continuity of learning a language? (Both classes conflict and therefore are mutually exclusive). I have talked with my language teacher, my peers, and my adviser about this—everyone always wants to help!
