I was accepted to College Park Scholars and got a $5000/year (over 4 years) Presidential scholarship. Senioritis has hit me pretty hard, so my grades second semester haven't been that great. I think I my worst case scenario would be: 2 B's, 2 C's, and 3 D's.
Thus, I have two questions:
(1) Do we need to send final transcripts to UMCP (and do they even really look at the grades?)? I've heard that we need to bring transcripts to freshman orientation for advising, and that they may look at your transcripts, but just to see that you graduated.
(2) If a final transcript is required/scrutinized, would my grades be enough to have my admission and/or scholarship revoked? I've seen so many conflicting answers to this question and I really don't know what to believe.
Please don't reply if you don't know for sure or if your reply doesn't pertain specifically to UMCP. If you do reply, please state your source, and if you talked to a UMD rep or someone like that, can you say what year you received your info? The more recent, the better.
Sorry for being so anal, but I just want to be certain. Plus, I'm sure others would appreciate it too if this information was accurate and up to date.
