it doesnt say. its an "unofficial transcript" . but i withdrew by a certain deadline. There is a "drop before blah blah for no W on transcript" and then there is a deadline that says "drop before bleh bleh with W on transcript". I withdrew before the 2nd deadline. Hopefully that means its non-punitive and the punitive ones are after the 2nd deadline...

usually with the transcript will be something like "credits attempted" "credits earned" etc. for the W. 0.00 makes sense for credits earned. Check the credits attempted though. If that is also 0.00 you should be fine ie. it isn't punative. It might still be a good idea to call or email the dean's office to sort it out for sure though.

Check with your school before you freak out. If they consider it non-punitive, LSAC will too.

I won guys. I spoke to the Dead of my school, I spoke to the Director, I spoke with the Law School Admissions council, and I won. I asked the LSAC is W's from my school constitute as an F, and she said no they do not. On my transcript for the "earned" and "attempted" , the "attempted" is in parenthesis like this (3), but thats just for the schools attendance records. It is not considered punitive and under the "total attempted vs earned" it does not show up. Anyways, LSAC said it doesnt constitute as an F. I'm so stoked.
