    I am currently a sophmore gpa of 3.8 my downfall is that I also have 8 withdrawals. Freshman year I dropped 2 semesters first due to a situation having to deal with my son I got a compassionate withdraw from the school for the first 4 courses. Second semester freshman year my grand father died and I took it very hard it kept me away from classes which led to 4 more withdrawals. I have 51 credits now and retook all the classes I dropped leading to good grades. I want to know will these effect me if I can provide proof in a letter of the compassionate withdraw and also my grandfathers death?

    Make sure it's documented. You might want to ask LizzyM.
