How much will a C impact my chances?

imdumbimdumb Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
I should start off saying I'm not ambitious and my only aspirations are to get into a nursing school, so I am not concerned about my chances of getting into a top 100 school. Still, I want to get into a decent college which is why I am concerned. It's the first quarter of my sophomore year, and I slacked off... a lot. I was able to keep an 85% in my AP World History class throughout the majority of the quarter, but I was extremely unprepared for a test that was worth 35% of our quarter grade. I ended up getting a 61%(*cringe*) and it dropped my grade down to a 73%(* larger cringe*). The grading period ends this Friday and I may be able to raise my grade to a 75%, but that's still pretty bad. I really just wanted to know how much this would affect my chances of getting into an out of state college or any decent college really. My current weighted GPA is a 3.306 and I plan on working hard for the rest of the semester to raise that C to at least a B. I am also in Honors French 3-4 and Pre-Ap English 3-4 which my grades are pretty decent in. Any help would be appreciated, please and thank yous in advance.
