All my senior grades are mostly A's with one or two B's except for AP English; I have C/C+'s in AP English. I don't know how much of an impact will my AP English have on admission decisions from my mid-year report. I've started taking AP English this year from an honors English course so I don't know if they'd be lenient or harsh about the grades.
