    Hello, everyone. I am very honored to be notified by my Congressman's staffer that I received an appointment to West Point. As happy and ecstatic as I can be, I still have a question in my head.

    I just mailed my 7th semester transcript a week ago (before I found out) and it's still not on my portal. It shows the following:

    AP Literature: B
    AP Chemistry: D
    AP Physics: B
    AP Calculus AB: B
    Band: A
    AP Government: A

    My question is: will the D in chem put my appointment at risk?

    Thank you.

    It shouldn't. Not with 4 other AP courses with A's and B's. You'll just need to study chemistry real hard next year. I could never grok that subject.

    I believe a D will be of concern. JMO

    I don't know if the D will be an issue or not, but at the very least you should be prepared to answer the question "Why did you end up with a D in AP Chemistry?" if it is asked.
