    How bad is a "W" on your college transcript? (serious)

    Im a junior in college with a 3.5 GPA. Im enrolled in a class that is a little over my head, it is a religion class, and was described to me by my advisor as "introductory", when in fact it is full of people focused on this area of study only. Long story short I have about 4 As in my other classes and around a 55 in this one. I need to drop it, but now I will have a W on my transcript if I do drop.So how bad is this? Im sure its better than a D or F but I just want to know how bad it will be before I drop. Im worried about this mainly because I will be applying to law school shortly. Thanks for the responses.

    I've never heard that it was bad at all, I dropped a few classes for various reasons during school. It doesn't affect your gpa, which obviously is much preferred to a D or and F.

    edit: and w/ a pretty solid overall gpa you really shouldn't worry about it.

    means nothing except that you withdrew from a class, does not affect your GPA.

    I think it's not as bad as an F but it basically implies that you were getting an F. GPA won't look bad but your transcript will

    Wouldnt you get a WF (withdraw while failing) if you were getting an F? I've heard that a WF is the only withdraw that looks bad.

    I am 38 and no one has ever asked. Only 2 or 3 people in my life needed a transcript and one were employers. Maybe a school or two needed it.
