My father recommended me to be a nursing major and that's when my nightmare began. I shouldn't have listened to him because a lot of the classes I took were for nothing! I ended up having 3 W's on my grade in anatomy & physiology, spanish, and american history simply because they were not part of my interest and I also thought they wouldn't show up on my transcript so I withdrew from spanish and american history class after switching my major because those classes aren't required. I told my father I would like to be a mechanical engineer and he agreed that I should follow my dreams. I finally found myself at home when I excelled in my calculus based physics, chemistry and math classes getting straight A's. I never gotten below an A in my math, chemistry and physics courses. In fact I had the highest test grade average in chemistry when the professor posted the grade demographics on the board. My GPA is a 3.6 right now. I also want to be a physicist one day after completion of a B.S. mechanical engineering. These W's are completely unrelated to my major which is engineering however they are there... like an ugly scar in your face that cannot be removed. I'm transferring to a 4 year school soon and I'm afraid of what they will think about the W's. Will grad schools or PhD programs look at the W's I received completely unrelated to my major? Would they care?
