i'm interested in applying to BU in the fall, and I was hoping you could answer a question about the college of arts and sciences. I am hoping to pursue a major in chemistry while in college, and I am wondering whether or not my high school chemistry grades will be taken into consideration. I know that I need to apply to a specific school (CAS) but will my chances of making it into the chemistry program depend on how well I did specifically in my high school chemistry classes? or will admissions just look at my overall course load and gpa? I got B's both semesters of honors chem and I received a B first semester in my double period AP chem class. I am hoping to get a 4 on the AP exam and an A second semester. Also, if I apply to a different school and get in there, can I transfer into CAS once the semester starts?
