    I received an appointment to the Class of 2017 (Presidential Nomination), and I'm a little worried about my admission status. It is the end of the first quarter and I have a C+ in AP Calculus. I was just wondering if this is enough reason to have my offer pulled.

    Pretty sure you'll be okay as long as your other grades are good.

    The primary ways your offer could be pulled are if you:

    (1) Bomb your classes such that USNA thinks you stopped working

    (2) Have a drug or alcohol issue

    (3) Have a serious legal issue (i.e., commit a crime)

    (4) Have a disqualifying medical issue that arises after you were qualified

    There are probably a few others but these are the biggies. Of note, the above don't necessarily guaranteed your offer would be pulled, but I wouldn't want to test USNA in this environment.

    A "C" in one or more courses won't be a problem.

    You have a whole quarter to raise your grade out of the "C" range.
    Though, USNA might not rescind an appointment for 1 "C," I'd recommend getting that grade up to at least in the "B" range.

    Don't know if it is same for Navy, but submitting your final transcript by certain date is a requirement to keep your appointment for West Point.

    Had to do some work around as some high schools in MD didn't release the final transcript past due date. Had a few kids with appointments vacationing not getting the message for the admissions office.
