How does adcoms look at Ws on your transcript? I have about 5 W s on my transcript, all for the same semester. Would I have to explain myself? I actually have a ligitimate reason for it. I had a major problem to deal with for years and because of this problem, my entire college academic career suffered. Now that the problem is sloved, I am doing better in school now, and I am woking hard to raise my GPA. Would they take into account all that was going on during that time or would I be just another reject?
