hi everyone. like every other senior probably, i had a bad case of senioritis, but i'm talking really bad.. like bad from the time senior year began, not starting second semester. i got 1 A, 2 B's, and 4 C's my first semester, but i still got into the university of maryland college park (don't know if they saw my first semester grades.) i thought i was going to end up with 3 A's, 2 B's, and 2 C's for my second semester grades, but today i learned that my 2 C's were going to drop to D's because of some grades that were added in later that dropped my C's. this brings me to 3 A's, 2 B's, and 2 D's.
my counselor originally said that i would be fine in terms of not getting my acceptance revoked, but that was before i found out that my C's might turn out to be D's. i'm going to school tomorrow to talk to my counselor and also my teachers to see what's up with those grades, because i thought grades were already final but apparently the teachers are still factoring in other things into the grades.
now, if my grades do turn out to be 2 D's, then what do you think maryland will do to my acceptance? i have never heard of maryland revoking acceptances for poor grades, nor have i seen a policy for this outlined on their website. if my grades stand as 2 C's, which i may be able to do when i go to school tomorrow, then will i be okay? or will my first semester grades also call my acceptance into question? and don't give me any "i can't believe you let your grades get this bad" or w/e. what's done is done, and i know i've screwed myself over. i don't need to hear it again.
