8th semester grades...slipping

Dec 30, 2017
Traditionally I am a straight A's student and never havr gotten a B before, and I have committed to West Point. This last semester I have a C in AP US Government and a B in AP Economics and AP Statistics. Sorry if this sounds superfluous, but that C keeps looming over my head. Is it a danger to my status when sending 8th semester transcripts?

I watched a video by USMA admissions in which one of the admissions officers explains that USMA has been known to rescind applicants' appointments when they see D and Fs.

If you have just a C and B, according to the video, you should be fine. However...

Don't interpret what I just posted as any form of reassurance. You should always push yourself to exceed academically, physically, and mentally (I know that sounded cliché but whatever :D).

DD struggle with AP US History, just wasn't her thing. Passed the class with an 85, but did not do well on the actual AP exam. It is a tough class for some, but as kinnem said, there is certainly enough time to get that C into the B range. Don't leave anything to chance, especially when you have your appointment. Good luck!
