    I am aware that I will be needing to send my 7th semester transcript to the academy soon and am very nervous about it. I took AP Calculus this year along with multiple other AP classes. I received an A in all my classes except for Calculus. Even though I put almost all of my time apart from football and my other activities into the class, I still received a C for the semester. Even with the C my gpa is still a 3.9+. I am just curious as to how much this might hurt me once the academy receives my transcript. My ACT is high with a composite of 31 so I'm just unsure about what this will do to my chances. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    No case is the same, but you should be fine. I had a C-.

    Where are the seventh semester transcripts supposed to be sent to? I can't find a definite answer anywhere and my counselor has neither been in nor answered my email (Although it's only been a couple days). Also, do they have to be sent in by the 31st of January?

    My DS is an appointee. In the instructions to appointees, he must send his 7th semester transcript. I have seen the January 31st date, but I can not confirm that for you. This is a copy from the appointee handbook and granted it is for graduation transcripts, however this address comes up for most things that need to be sent to the Academy:

    High School Transcript
    If you are still in high school, you must ask your school to
    send a graduation transcript of your final grades to HQ
    USAFA/RRS, 2304 Cadet Drive, Suite 2400, USAF Academy
    CO 80840-5025, as soon as possible.

    Thank you. Either way, I plan to have those transcripts sent in over night, just as a precaution.

    I read this as final grades as in eighth semester...not seventh semester grades. In fact, the word final is in bold as if to emphasize.

    I have read and asked online in this forum. The pre-candidate booklet states that 7th semester grades need to be reported. I was trying at the same time to give the correct address. As I had the Appointee booklet open I copied it as it had the address. I will now copy the pre-candidate book to satisfy your need. One was on my desktop the other was buried in my documents. The following statement is located on page 6 of the pre-candidate booklet. Hope this satisfies anyone else's challenges. I was only trying to help!

    If you sent your transcript during the first semester of
    your senior year, you must ensure that your high school
    sends us a transcript with seventh semester grades as soon
    as they are available.

    I just exchanged emails with my son's counselor and she states that they aren't necessary but you can send them to the address if you wish.
