    The first college I went to I dropped out in the first few weeks because I didn't like it (my transcript from there is blank but shows I attended). Yeah, I know, bad idea but I was immature. Then I went to community college for one semester and then I did a semester at a real college this fall. I have a very good gpa so far. I'm worrying that schools will deny me if I report the first college I went to with the blank transcript, and that they'll probably ask me what I was doing then if I don't report it and then deny me for not reporting it. I'm wondering if any of you know anything about this. Thank you.

    Is it W's or what? Does it just say "J Doe, Fall 1907, 0 credits"?

    Be honest, report it, and explain why you dropped out. Simple as that. Not everyone is ready for college at 18, but if your GPA is as good as you say it is, you clearly have the maturity now to pursue your goals.

    if it shows up as Ws you definitely have to report it. If not, then I would call AMCAS. You might get away with not putting it in.

    The transcript is just blank, no Ws, I dropped out really soon after I started.

    So basically your registration was cancelled, so you never attended.
