non punitive Ws question

Postby sarcasticzebra » Sun Jul 21, 2013 12:41 pm

At my school Ws are non punitive and when I called LSAC they said Ws are omitted from my institution...

At most schools they print the denotion: 'Semester Warning' on a transcript when the accumulative gpa is in good standing, but your semester gpa perhaps isn't. And in the beginning I had that printed and the next semester I had all Withdrawals and 'Semester Warning' was printed underneath that semester. They print that until you have a semester in good standing. My accum gpa is above a 3.00 and I am testing in 170s on practice diagnostics, but my question is:

Even though they said Ws are non punitive from my school, will they decide to count them as punitive because during that semester of all Ws, there was the denotion semester warning printed on transcript. Has anyone else been in this predicament? What did LSAC do?

Don't double-post. Your duplicate thread is still open.
