Does a "withdraw" on HS transcript look bad for college admissions?
I took dual enrollment classes throughout high school and during my IB junior year I signed up for a Medical Terminology course and College Algebra. However, I withdrew from the Med Term course because of my regular IB workload and so many exams, presentations, etc. during my second semester. I told my guidance counselor that I would rather withdraw from it than fail the course completely while it was still a few weeks in, and she agreed as junior year was so stressful.
I plan on retaking the course during my senior of high school when I know that I will have time for it, but probably during my second semester. Will the withdrawal look bad on my transcript and affect my college admissions? Please provide genuine answers.
