Do Ws matter?

Postby law4devon » Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:26 pm

Hello, all.

I have a solid GPA (3.6ish) but I also have a few Ws on my transcript.

Will they count against me, and if so, to what extent?

Thank you!

If you interview at any of your schools it might not be a bad idea to be like "ps about those W's let me explain right quick" just so that the schools don't think you have a nonchalant attitude towards withdrawing from classes, that it's something you take with serious consideration y'know? An addendum also might not be a bad call
