    These shouldn't hurt that much, if your grades are
    strong and you have good letters of recommendation.
    Don't mention the withdraws and if you are questioned
    have an explaination ready. When explaining the
    withdraws, try to make it sound like you are a better
    person now for overcoming obstacles. This should
    help.
    Best wishes!
