    Hello, I am a senior in highschool about to graduate on the 22nd and currently possess a 4 year ROTC scholarship offer to Drexel (pending medical qualification, I think the doctor said something about a trace of protein in my urine) and was wondering if a 53% as a 4th quarter grade in my basic piano class may affect my scholarship or admission at all. The school knows this teacher is not very good (comes 30 minutes late every day) and as a result the majority of the class has D's or C's. I still have an 86% as my final grade for the class. Do you think this slipup may jeopardize me in any way?

    Thank you.

    Absolutely not. First it's piano for goodness sake. Second, you've got a reasonable final grade.

    Don't worry about the the protein in the urine too much. Was it DoDMERB's test? Just take another urine exam with your primary care physician and you should be fine. Sometimes that extra protein is due to an excess in exercise. At least that is what happened to me.

    I agree with Kinnem, This will not have any effect on you at all.

    I agree with the others, don't worry about AROTC, but if you received merit from Drexel that may be a different story because they will ask for your final grades. Just like AROTC scholarship. Check with Drexel admissions/Fin Aid if you have any merit money coming.

    The protein issue shouldn't be an issue. Typically, if you drink a lot of water the night before, and do not work out the day before, it will be fine.

    5 yrs here and have yet to see one poster that failed the urine test and followed those directions to have protein in their urine the next time.
