What is the "Midterm Report" on Common App?

I have my fall semester grades and I got a B in Honors Linear Algebra which ***** on my entire GPA. I would assume that my fall grades get sent on a transcript, but what is the midterm report? Is the midterm report a summary of where my grades are at a month or so into the winter semester? If this is the case, is much weight placed on the midterm report grades? I could really use a second chance with the linear algebra debacle.

    It has your updated fall grades, which the college can factor into your overall gpa. So it just effects your gpa by a bit having a B.

    Yes, this is what it is. The amount of weight likely depends on where you sit in the pool of applicants: for a sure accept or deny it probably has little or no weight, but if you're in the middle, it could tip the balance either way.
