Am I screwed?

<p>I got a C in Physical Education.
I just moved to Virginia and when my grades transferred over, I found that I had a C in Phys Ed because I was absent for so many days while I was school/house-hunting in VA. I highly doubt I can make this up. Will it completely kill me to have a 'C' on my transcript?</p>

<p>a bit... maybe. it'll drag down your rank and gpa, but when you send in your application, you can add a letter or personal statement giving your reason for why you got a C. usually extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration.</p>

<p>remember colleges really don't give a crap about PE itself. But it does lower your GPA.</p>

<p>I've calculated that it will bring my final GPA down to a 3.97.
Is a 4.0 that much more impressive?</p>

<p>Many colleges recalculate GPAs. In doing this, they add extra weight to IB, AP courses, and they don't consider at all nonacademic courses like gym.</p>

<p>would they really take the time to do that?</p>

<p>'s gym</p>

<p>haha gym, last year i had an A- in gym. I was so ****ed, no one could do a pushup or situps butthey had higher scores or at least I think they did. he probably liked the girls in tight clothes.</p>

<p>well, tell me, is 4.0 so much more impressive than 3.97?</p>

<p>Of course! .03 is such a big difference. I guess you will have to resort to community course instead, that's if you can even get in with that lack of .03. Good luck dude.</p>

<p>they usually take gym into account</p>

<p>lol i got a A- too . always wore my uniform, on time every day, but when i checked to see if this was right my teacher told me "well, it's just the fact that i don't like you that much." total bs</p>

<p><bullcrap>OMG! C in PE? You're so screwed! I guess I'll see you working as a garbage man in few years. Man, you juse messed everything up</bullcrap></p>

<p><sarcasm>Yeah, give up any hope of being anything in life. Your C in phys ed will basically mean you can't get into any college, including a JC. You might as well drop out of school now, and try to get by as a professional bum.</sarcasm></p>

<p>oh seriously you guys.
will it make a big difference?</p>

<p>4.0 vs. 3.97</p>

<p>Everyone is so clearly trying to tell you that it won't...</p>

<p>relax!! its just one cares about gym trust me</p>

<p>Can't you just audit the course and then retake it correspondance? I mean that is if you're that worried about it....which I wouldn't be! C'mon kiddo its PE! Although a 4.0 would be nice to keep for the sake of <em>~</em>snaps<em>~</em>!!</p>

<p>I had a strong B in gym class end of 10th grade, according to the teacher. On the last day of school we had a recreation kind of activity day and the PE teacher just happened to be the subject of the "dunk tank". If I recall correctly, if you hit a certain target, it would dump him into the tank of water ... I'm sure you've all seen them. Before the dunking began, a friend and I unscrewed the lid on a jar of canola oil, beet, and sardine mixture I had been saving in my room (unrefrigerated) for several months, and secretly dropped it into the dunk tank inside a brown lunch bag. Let's just say I ended up with a 79% (C+) on my report card when it came in the mail. :( :D :D</p>

<p>I later heard that all of the "dunkees" could not get a "fishy" smell out of their clothing. The teacher was especially irritated.</p>
