    Received an appointment to USNA class of 2019. My first quarter, I got a C in English 12 honors. In the second quarter i got an A in the same class. I also am getting a C in the second quarter in math. In first quarter I received a B in math. On my midterms I am receiving a C on my math midterm, my physics midterm, and my psychology midterm (hard classes). So in total, 1 c first quarter, 1 second, and 3 on the midterms. Should I worry about losing my appointment?

    What are the semester grades? Those are what colleges really look at.

    Instead of focusing on whether an appointment will be rescinded or not...my question (rhetorically) to you is how come you are getting C's for multiple exams/quarters?
    At USNA, you only have 6 and 12 week exams and the final exam per semester. If you wait until any of those times to find out you aren't understanding/getting the material, you could find yourself on a bad glideslope and in a lot of hurt.
    I would ask yourself the "why" is it happening and then do something about it (i.e. see a classmate, teacher, tutor, etc.) as needed. At the first sign you don't understand something, seek help!
    You do not want to be in the same situation at USNA.

    I absolutely agree. I actually talked to my teachers a week ago but midterms have been taken by then. It was a bad move on my behalf to wait so long, but I am definitely going to get 0 c's 3rd and 4th quarter, that I can guarantee. Based off your knowledge, do you think it's too late and usna will reconsider my acceptance, or do you think they will give me another shot?

    Again, I would be less concerned on having the appointment rescinded and would focus your time on fixing the problem so that you finish strong in your last two quarters and don't repeat the error again. No one on here can give you a definitive answer on your appointment and I decline to speculate.

    When those quarter grades and midterms are averaged, it doesn't look like you would end up with C's in any class for the semester, maybe AP Calc. Has USNA asked for your 7th semester transcripts? From what my DD's USNA RD told her, USNA does not require Senior year transcripts from most candidates. They do request them from some in certain circumstances, but its not the norm. My oldest two received appointments in October and were never asked to send in senior year grades. SO, unless they have requested them from you specifically, I don't think USNA will ever see your Senior year grades, so I wouldn't worry too much. Just work hard and get them up!

    Yeah that's what i thought but turns out my high school sends mid year and final transcripts no matter what, so while I won't get any c's for a final grade usna will see c's for the first two quarters,

    'C's in two different subjects over 2 quarters is not a catastrophe. I wouldn't waste any time worrying about it, especially since there is nothing you can do other than what you plan to do. It either works out or it doesn't. Continue working backup plans. I know you have an appointment but even without this issue there are many things that can happen to keep you out of the academy. There have been kids who severely sprained their ankle getting off the bus on the first day at the academy and were sent home. You never know, so you should always have a backup plan in place (general rule of life and military tactics). But most importantly, quit wasting your time worrying and get on with your plans to get your grades up.
