I want to transfer to USC next fall and was wondering if a couple w's on my transcript will affect it at all?
I have about a 3.4gpa all USC transferrable credit, that also fulfills their core requirements, and am non-minority, southern california resident and cc student.

also, by transfer time next summer ill have completed 2 calculus courses(i heard having a higher level math education helps your chances of getting in)

I'm a high school senior and have taken several classes at community college.
I also have a couple of W's.
Do you think this will affect me when applying to colleges as a freshman?

Although USC is competitive to get into, a 3.4 is a pretty good gpa for a college student, w's notwithstanding. I think you should have a good chance.
