Do I have a chance with Cs on my transcript?
Hello everyone, im going to be a junior in August. Sophomore year, I took 2 AP classes and 2 honors classes. Second semester I got a C in Honors Pre Calc, a C in AP Bio and a C in Spanish. I passed both AP tests. My schedule for junior year consists of 5 APs and H Spanish Along with leadership (also leadership in 10th grade). I have strong extracurriculars (especially in speech and debate), and my school is pretty difficult but new. During my past summer and this one I have taken 2 college courses at my local university. So I would say I’m “involved”. To be honest I didn’t quite try last year and slacked A LOT. I plan on changing that for junior and senior year. The rest of my grades are As and Bs. I’m taking the SAT soon but my PSAT score from last year is relatively good and on track. I was wondering what my target schools would look like, in terms of acceptance rates at least. I have reach schools that are highly selective but do I even have a chance?
Thank you, and sorry if this is messy
