Good Afternoon, I am a college re applicant that has an appointment for 2021. This semester, my hard engineering courses are really taking a toll on my grades. I go to a very tough engineering school with no grade inflation and 19 credit hours... If a C appears on my transcript, how will that be viewed by the academy? At my school its normal to "fail" a class in engineering (meaning lower than a C-). I am also NROTC if that adds any significance. For NROTC, the minimum grade requirement in physics and calculus courses is a D, however, my university requires a C-.
