Medical withdrawal on UG transcript--bad for med school?
DD is taking a college level class as a senior in high school. The class is through our state flagship and would show up as a class with a transcript from that flagship as well as on her high school transcript. She may have to have surgery and would be out of of school for 2-3 weeks. This is a Spanish class that is mostly conversational so missing that much of the class is going to be difficult to make up. It's too late to withdraw from the class so if she just drops she will have an F--not good. The prof said he could help her with a medical withdrawal but I'm not sure how that will be reported on the transcript or even if she would have it on the transcript at all. If it shows up as some kind of W on the transcript, will that play a factor down the road for medical school admissions?
She was planning on getting at least a minor in Spanish in college for future use in the medical world. I think she will be able to still do that if she wants even if she doesn't finish this class. It is technically a 300 level class at the University or 5th year of high school Spanish.
