I've received a full 4yr NROTC Marine option scholarship. As part of my course load, I did an independent study in AP European History, and took the AP test. However, I didn't really do a lot of work during the year, so my advisor for the class has offered me two options: write a 20 page research paper, or drop the class, as it doesn't matter much anyways. I would drop the class, but I don't want to lose my scholarship! Any advice?
