    You're doing better than me! I have straight Bs (with all AP classes) and I had a C in college Calculus I but my teacher adjusted my high school grade to B-. I have that same fear of getting a D in calculus though.

    I don't know much on the protocol of them revoking your appointment.. maybe someone else can shad some light? But it looks like you are doing fine up until now. Hopefully you won't get that E, and maybe try for some extra credit or help?

    Grades and having appointment revoked

    I am assuming your first semester senior year grades have already been sent to the Academy. Have you thought about communicating with the Admissions Office about the potential for a failing grade appearing on your final transcript with an explanation as to why you might have earned that grade?

    My son failed AP C++ in his first semester senior year. The rest of his grades were A's with 1 B+. He dropped AP C++ for second semester and transferred to the Honors version of the course in independent study. He earned an A in that. He wrote a letter to the Admissions office and explained that he took the AP C++ because it was the only elective available to him in order to receive all the other courses he wanted and needed to take to be on track for USMA admission. He explained that he put max effort into the course but it was impacting his success in his core courses and he was dropping it. He was honest and proactive. His admission was not impacted. He is now a USMA graduate. Good luck. Don't panic. Keep working. Communicate.
