    how does it effect if a student has 3 withdrawals on the transcript.

    does it affect anyway on being a competitive student.

    is having a C better in the classes that are not pre-requisites or W would work?

    and then retake in some other time that I plan to withdraw from the class since I think I will end up getting a C which would mess up my gpa.

    any suggestions..greatly appreciated!!

    thanks

    It depends, 3 Ws overall? or 3 Ws within a year or semester? I don't think they'll really care if you have 3 Ws spread throughout your transcript but if you have more... be ready to explain it.
    The semester is also early so try to boost up the C in the non pre-req classes??? They won't look at them too much I dont think but again don't get too many Ws... it kinda shows that you easily give up. A few Cs especially in non-pre reqs won't hurt your overall gpa too much... but just a few! Hope that helps?

    If you were facing some sort of personal issues that semester mention it in your essay but it probably has to be a very good reason. I'd rather take a C, than a withdrawal to be honest. Save the withdrawals for the F's and D's that will cause way more damage. Also if you withdraw, you better get an A when you retake it to prove that whatever is happening this semester is just a fluke.
