my counselor said it will be fine as long as I do well this semester...
<p>I hope I'm missing part of the story. I hope that you dropped the Calc class and are not continuing on. (Such a plan would be tantamount to another bad grade.) Or, are you on a block schedule? If so, can you repeat the course at your HS?</p>
<p>If I were you, I'd forgo party spring senior year and try to enroll in an Intro Calc class at your local juco. Demonstrate to colleges that you can do college-level work, successfully.</p>
<p>Then I would write a mea culpa to the colleges to which you applied and explain what happened, what you learned, how you are rectifying the situation (repeating the course), and how it won't happen again. </p>
<p>A D in any senior course is a huge red flag. (AB in particular, is not a difficult course, which adcoms know.) Be proactive.</p>
