If the reason they gave you was that, I would definitely try again because it matters now. Go to student affairs, make an appoint with the dean, and plead your case. If you were wronged, you should never give up trying to correct it.
I actually have tried those. At the time I was at ASU to withdraw from classes, you had to do it in person at the Registrar's office. Since '04 withdrawals were done online, so they told me do not keep written records more than 2 years. That is why it was up to the professors to submit a grade change - when they refused, that was the end of the line according to the university.
At this point, I really don't think a .4 drop in my gpa is going to matter all that much with everything else I have in my applications. The only top 10 I'm applying to is Northwestern, and I have 17 years full-time work experience, 12 years in management all while completing my undergrad and graduate degree's. I'm hoping that offsets the -.4 in my undergrad gpa from many years ago.
Life is a new lesson every day, things I learned in my college years and even now will help me when my children are attending ( not so distant future ).
