i have at least 100 pages to write in the coming weeks and may, depending on this and that, approach both the college of law and honor's program and say, "hey, is it cool if i withdraw from the course? (it's not really a class, but a pedagogical status that facilitates the thesis at my school.) i want to give this puppy the attention it deserves and hope to turn it into a notable manuscript during the next four or five years. you know i'm good for it!"
it seems perfectly acceptable, but maybe i am missing stuff?
