Medical Injury!

Hello everyone, I currently attend a 2-year college. I am enrolled in four classes, but due to a car accident I was involved in last week I am considering to withdraw from two classes. When I submit my transfer applications next semester, will my two withdraws "W" on my application look worse than getting a "C" in both classes?

    Depending on the car accident and the injuries sustained from the wreck you could talk to the school and request a medical withdrawal/late withdrawal. When I was jumped in a stairwell and beaten up I was able to do a medical withdrawal from my courses that semester - it showed up on my transcript as " Withdrawal Semester ____ Special Exception". I have found that institutions of higher learning are often willing to work with you, if you have the proper medical documentation.
