2 consecutive W's in the same class.
Hello, I am currently a first-year student at a California community college majoring in philosophy and political science, hoping to attend law school in the future. The predicament I have found myself in is that I have dropped the same college algebra class two semesters in a row. The first reason was because of a health issue my mother was struggling with that caused me to have to divert my mornings to nursing her back to health. The second reason is that during the summer I was retaking the course my grandfather died who was like a father to me and it caused me to fall way behind in my studies. These are the only 2 W's on my transcript and as of right now I have a 4.0 GPA. I know having two withdrawals from the same class looks very unprofessional but would admissions counselors be lenient if they knew I had valid reasons for dropping? Thank you for taking the time to read this and any response would be greatly appreciated. I am applying to UCB, UCLA, USC, UCSB, NYU, UCI, and a few other out of state schools.5 replies
