    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone got into UCLA, UCSD, or any California medical school with one W on their transcript?

    If anyone did, was it ever asked about in your interviews?

    Thanks a lot!

    One W will not hurt your chances of admission-- I had one W on my transcript. On the few occasions where it was brought up, I just told them why I withdrew (was taking the MCAT that quarter, wanted more time to study, quantum was a time-intensive class). Good luck. I got into UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC San Diego, and UC Los Angeles (through the UCR/UCLA program).
