Will 7 W's affect my transferring to UC Santa Cruz?
I'm an english major trying to transfer next fall, hopefully to UCSC. Some of my other choices are USF, Portland State, U of Oregon, UWashington, and Evergreen State. I'm finishing up my 3rd year at a California CC and I have a 3.2 GPA. I'm really worried that I have too many withdrawals on my transcript. I made one of the W's up, but the other classes were pretty irrelevant to my major or else I'd go back and take them...but I'm running out of time with only one semester left before transferring. I've heard that W's aren't that big of a deal as long as you explain them and show improvement... but I had to withdraw from yet another class this semester (applying in November), so I'm worried it's still going to look pretty bad. Now I have at least one W for almost every semester that I've been at my CC. Any advice? Anyone out there gotten into these schools with excessive W's? Help! I'm really worried
