    1. This is very comforting to hear. Can you share more information like what your overall average was? Relevant research experience? What school/program?

      - anxious student with a few WDs applying to grad schools soon

  4. I had one and applied to UW for a grad program in Arts. They never asked about it and didn't seem to care.

  5. Seeing a WD on your transcript is better than looking at a fail. It's basically just a credit that isn't granted. I had to take a WD for a course that I was failing in. Hope that helps!
