there was this course i took over the summer, but dropped it literally 1 week after the course started because i didn't feel like doing that during my summer.

However, it showed on my transcript that I have withdrawn form that course? I honestly thought it wouldn't even show up on my transcript because i dropped it so early

Anyways, would withdrawing a summer course look better than a regular term drop?

Thanks

It sounds as if you chose to withdraw from the course after the add/drop deadline ended for the summer term at your school, and for that reason, the Withdrawal (W) notation appeared on your transcript. That's all.

Assuming there is no questionable pattern of repetitive W's on your academic transcript, the W is GPA-neutral anyway.

No worries.

its so sad, i could swear that i dropped the course before the add/drop deadline.

i am gonna talk to my councillor about that perhaps see if it is a glitch.

No one will care unless it looks like you have Ws scattered all over your transcript.
I have this one W, but also this semester i had one course that is incomplete. i was super sick and my prof arranged that i take a special make up exam in a couple of months. but for now the course will show up as incomplete but by the time i take the test a grade would be listed in place of the incomplete.

The rest of my grades are 4.0s.

freshman year i took a full year course load (15 credits), got 3.9

summer of freshman year i have this stupid Withdrawn

sophomore year i took a full course load (15 credits), got 4.0


junior year i took 12 credits, and got 4.0 except one incomplete (Which i will get a grade for it soon tho)

How bad will is my position GPA wise : (
be 100% brutally honest

Should i use up space on my primaries to explain this?

I have this one W, i made a post about this earlier but basically i took a summer course in my freshman year but dropped it literally a week later. idk why this stupid course would even show up on my transcript to begin with, i dropped it so early??!!!


also this semester i had one course that is incomplete. i was super sick and my prof arranged that i take a special make up exam in a couple of months (august 2024). but for now the course will show up as incomplete but by the time i take the test on august a grade would be listed.

I completed all pre reqs (biochem, orgo, physics, chem, calc etc etc) except for orgo 2. i got 4.0s on all of my science and math pre reqs

How bad is my position GPA wise because of this stupid W and I : (

Should i take space to explain this on my primaries or something? or is it not worth it

NO¡!!!!!!
Ws aren't Fs.
 
How many times do we have to tell you that no one will care?

FYI, people get kicked out of residency for being unteachable.

Now chill!
sorry

u said earlier that adcoms wont care unless u have Ws scattered all around ur transcript.

I have 1 W and 1 Incomplete (similar to a W i guess) so that's what got me worried
