Will my mid-year report terribly kill my chances at a selective college?
My grades that were sent with my secondary report were fine. 6 A's and 1 B+.
But my final grades slipped in one class: IB Theory of Knowledge. It dropped from an A to a C+. I won't lie and say I don't know what happened, because I know it's my fault. I'll own up to that. I forgot to turn in my rough draft to turnitin.com, and then completely tanked it, not intentionally of course. I mentally punched myself for that and invested in a new planner. Each point in that class is worth 2% of our grade.
Anyhow, I ended up getting my first C ever this semester. I ended it with 5 A's, 1 B+, and this C+, which will be going on my mid-report.
Will this C+ be completely detrimental to my chances of getting into a really selective college and automatically red-flag me as a no-go?
I had an UW 4.0 during freshman and sophomore year, and a 3.875 junior year. My cumulative was a 3.939 at the end of 6 semesters, but with the C factored in, I know it might've dropped a bit. This semester, I ended with an UW 3.625, my worst one yet.
I'd really appreciate your opinion. Thanks in advance!
