WDNs on academic transcript (withdrawn without academic penalty)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to know how WDNs are perceived on an academic transcript?

I know OLSAS does not indicate that a student has WDNs when converting all grades online. I wonder if admissions committees often look at a student's official academic transcript, and if so, how they might perceive those visible WDNs. 

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if anyone here can answer that with certainty.

My view is that it is normal to withdraw from certain courses for a variety of reasons. How does your course load look if you consider only the courses you didn't withdraw from? If it's a normal and proper course load, you are fine.

I had 4 and had no problem getting into various Ontario schools. My GPA and LSAT were close to the median for Western specifically.

Nope - I should mention I still maintained a full course load as I overloaded in the next semester each time.
