hey,
my first year at college was pretty bad.
1. first semester gpa: 3.4 (13 hours)
2. second semester : have 6 Ws (medical withdrawal)

i've taken 15 hours of science classes this summer and have a 4.00 for those fifteen hours. my gpa is like 3.70 now.

will the 6 Ws look really bad?
i know i can't withdraw from any classes from here on.
i'm not proud of my 1st year, but i'm working on repairing all this.
any advice? what do you think of my scenario?

I would avoid W's from here on out. I've applied to a few schools that ask you to explain each W and that could become a real pain in the azz if you don't have good reasons.

Just keep performing how you have been, without any more W's, and you'll be fine. Your GPA will be plenty high enough for medical schools, as long as those high grades weren't a product of constantly withdrawing from courses as they became difficult. 2 or 3 times through a course will look terrible.
