How much do withdrawals affect your application?

Postby jr409 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 5:31 pm

I'm anticipating about a 3.65 gpa and I've been testing in the mid 170s for the LSAT. However I've got 6 witjdrawals on my transcript. 4 of those were in one semester and due to family issues but I have no excuses for the other 2. Are my chances at a T14 shot?

What if you have 4 (5) WITH an excuse, such as the "family issue" example noted above, does that mean you need to address it, especially if you left the school thereafter? My sister's girlfriend is having this issue, sorry didn't want to start a thread for it.

Still nbd.


She can explain it if it would make her feel better but its really a marginal issue that won't make or break her app
