    The situation,

    I am enrolled in the IB program and am set to receive the diploma.I also received my appointment in early december to USMA with a presidential nomination. My problem is that I am will probably get a C in IB Chemistry HL for the first semester. Will USMA admissions withdraw an appointment b/c of a C on semester report card? Thanks for any help...

    Getting a C, especially in an IB class, should not be a problem. Don't get any D's or F's. :eek:

    Many cadets are at WP who have C's from a HS class...just don't make them a habit!

    No, it's just one C and for only one semester.

    I'd try to bring it up to a B second semester though to be safe.

    They will not withdraw your appointment. I can't remember if I got a C that last semester in high school (I think I did), but I can promise you I got a C, and WORSE!!! :eek: at the Academy.


    Eventually we went with "D for Done" or "2.0 Good to Go", however I would not recommend adopting those mottos, especially if you want to have any kind of say in where you'll be going for your first tour. :wink:
