I know a lot of colleges will almost immediately toss your application aside if you have more than one or two non As, so I'm wondering... is it to one's advantage or disadvantage to retake classes that didn't result in As, even if the final grades were Bs?
Someone I knew, who's going to attend Cornell, kept trying to convince me to retake those classes. He told me that colleges view that as 'determination'... in other words, in a positive light. *shrugs*
Other background info: I currently attend a community college, and am finishing up my second year there. Not sure if this info is relevant, but just in case, there it is!
