Hello guys,

I was wondering, as I was having a shitty semester both mentally and physically, I had to make a painful decision to withdraw from a single course I was doing the worst (and fortunately, I got A's in the remaining 3 courses, 2 of which being mathematics courses). I have been told that even though W does not count neither favorably nor adversely towards your GPA, it considered as badly as an F by the admission committee of graduate admission...

So the question is: is the above statement true? How badly is it going to affect my prospect? (Also, I am enrolled at a school considered one of the most rigorous in math in the nation, if that helps.)

Thanks in advance.
