Does USNA deeply look at 1st semester grades from Senior year?

I am in some really hard classes/ falling off academically, only slightly A- (AP), A- (AP), B-(AP) B+(Honors), and B+ (AP)... will this hurt my chances? Im scared they will look at my half year grades with a lot of attention and that it will carry a lot of weight. (this is for my first marking period)

My second marking period looks about the same except I'm pushing a C in one AP class... That makes me really worried.

Did they request your 7th semester grades? USNA does not request 7th semester grades from everyone.
What do you want us to do? Sugar coat it, pat you on the back and say everything's all right, you are taking hard classes so those B's are fine. (which is probably correct) Of course all A's would be better. Don't slack off, it will only get harder your freshman year.

They have not requested my 7th semester grades. I obviously want the reality, just expressing the extent of my concern.

One caution for you. Some high schools automatically send 7th semester grades to all the schools you have applied to. You may want to check what your school does. If USNA has not requested your grades, and you don't think they will help, but would hurt your chances, make sure your school does not send them unless specifically requested.
