    2 W’s on Transcript Course Load

    Hello, all! I’ve just been kind of concerned about my academic record. I have 2 W’s on my transcript (one from Calculus II which I retook the following semester and received an A in, and the other one was in a business class I dropped due to a change in minor). I still have a 3.8-3.9 GPA and I...

    Withdrawal from core prereq?

    I'm currently a freshman and withdrawing from gen chem this semester. I had a family emergency that resulted in me flying back and forth from my home state to the state where my university is currently located. This caused me to totally screw up any chance of even getting a "C" in the course...

    How does a 3rd W on my transcript look?

    Hello all! I'm just curious as to how a third W on a transcript looks to med schools. My first W was in a history class and the reason I dropped this one is because our professor (to put it lightly) flat out lied about his midterms. I should have dropped after the first midterm so I could have...

    I had one really rough year (sophomore year) and had three withdrawals in non-pre med classes. I was over my head trying to get a computer science minor and struggling with family/personal issues. How bad is having a couple withdrawals in one year if I killed it in my junior and senior year...
