How Badly Do You Have to Screw Up?

<p>...to get your acceptance rescinded.</p>

<p>My first quarter grades are definitely not stellar. Mostly high 80s (B+ range), and one grade in the 70s (Calc BC). Should I be okay?</p>

<p>Thanks.</p>

<p>Having read threads in CC for the past year, I have never heard of someone with All B+ save for one C (in an AP course) being rescinded.</p>

<p>So grades dropping from A-'s to B+'s (AP classes btw) is ok even for 1st semester? Cause I'm slightly worried about it, but too late to drop classes and I understand everything just one exam bringing my grade down.</p>

<p>(Of course I'm assuming I get accepted in the first place. Guess we'll know in ~37 days.</p>

<p>I feel like you should try and keep them up for the first semester just because of the midterm report or whatever. I'll start slacking off after that, provided I get accepted ED.</p>

<p>I wouldn't recommend slacking after first semester...I'm pretty sure you have to submit your final transcripts as soon as they come out and acceptance is technically tentative until then. </p>

<p>But, I think you'll be fine as long as you're doing your best and your grades don't fall any lower. I'm having the same issue. I have three As and 3 Bs right now for the semester...but my quarter 2 grades are atrocious!</p>

<p>Good luck! :D</p>

<p>If you get below a C- in any class, Northwestern's dean of students will send you a personal letter asking you to explain. Depending on your explanation you will either be 1. totally okay, 2. on probation, or (very very very rarely) 3. rescinded. </p>

<p>If you don't have a D+ or below, you will be in the clear.</p>
