SDSU's maintain grades for admission?

edited January 2010 in San Diego State University
I have been accepted to San Diego State University and I am a little confused about their rules of maintaining grades to be admitted. First, it says I need to get a C or above in the rest of my classes "In Progress" to be admitted. However, right after that it says I need to maintain my GPA I reported on my application to be accepted. But, how do I maintain my 3.9 GPA if I get B's in the rest of my classes? Anyone know?

    Hahaha uhm... I was accepted early too and feel really stupid for not noticing that discrepancy, considering we were accepted early for our excellence in education.

    I think there's more wiggle room on the GPA. For instance, if you get all Bs second semester, and your GPA goes down, you will have satisfied both requirements---they can see your transcript and calculate your GPA for 9th-11th grade and the first semester of senior year and see that it was as reported, and you'll have finished senior year with a C or above in all classes. Does that make sense?

    Yeah that's what I thought. I'll probably email them if I can't find out from someone else.
