This is just a question regarding their Terms & Conditions for freshmen, as it states "You must complete all coursework designated on your application, including those listed as "in progress" or "planned," with a grade of "C-" (or better) no later than the previous Spring Term for admission for the Fall Term."

I got into Cal Poly with a 3.73 GPA. My first semester grades for senior year was a 4.0 W. To get straight C's would mean they won't rescind you if your GPA is a 2.0+, and that doesn't make sense to me. If I went from a 3.73 to (worst case scenario; I bomb all my finals) a 2.75, they would not rescind me? Realistically, I'll probably end the year with a 3.0-3.5 GPA (I only have four classes right now). Would this be a significant drop that they'd rescind me, or does Cal Poly strictly adhere to the C- or better policy for all classes, irrespective of maintaining the admitted GPA?

Also, would a B in my AP class be regarded as an A or a B, since it's a CSU?
