How much does 2nd senior semester matter?

<p>I was recently admitted into Cornell's CAS and am currently receiving a D in the 2nd semester of my AP Physics C class, all my other classes are As with one B. Anyone know the specific requirements and guidelines required by Cornell in order for them to not revoke my admission? I've been having trouble sleeping and functioning normally due to the stress caused by the idea that I may not be able to attend Cornell. Please, I would like to know specific answers if anyone has any, or any feedback at all.</p>

<p>I'm also new to this forum as you can see by my post count.</p>

<p>EDIT: my school semester ends in about 1.5-2 weeks, we're on a track system and so our semester ends at the end of April. Not much time to bring my grade up by studying, although I have been attending a Physics Tutoring Class sunday-friday from 4-8 pm for the past 4 weeks in order to bring my grade up. pardon my grammar, im not feeling all too well at the moment.</p>

<p>Talk to your HS counselor, asap! He or she will probably know the policy, and have some advice for you.</p>

<p>Take a deep breath & relax. They will not rescind your acceptance for a single D. The worst you might get is a written warning but obviously you'll still have a clean slate when you come to Cornell. Don't stress out, it's PHYSICS C! If this was trig or something I'd have to wonder, but you're in a very difficult course.</p>

<p>To tell you the truth, I'd be worried about a D. Do anything possible to get that up to a C, and since your other classes are good, you'll be in better shape at that point.</p>

<p>Cornell2009Hotelie, are you serious that he wouldn't get rescinded for a D? And I was worried about my B- for the year in AP Bio...</p>

<p>I got a C in one of my classes and I turned out ok. as long as you're actually trying and putting work into it you should be OK. talk to your counselor and Cornell. i personally know one person from my high school whose acceptance got rescinded. he had to attend another college for a year and pull a certain gpa before they let him back in.</p>

<p>Shizz, he got rescinded from Cornell or somewhere else? What kind of grades did he get?</p>

<p>I really don't think his acceptance would be rescinded, but I guess us EDers are in a different position. Cornell knows we have been in for months and already withdrew any other apps. But still, it's a really difficult course and in light of the fact he has all As and Bs otherwise, it's obvious he is just struggling with one subject. I honestly think it would look worse to have straight Cs. However, if I were in his position I might be viewing this differently.</p>

<p>sorta rescinded from Cornell. they made him go to another school for a year before coming to cornell. i'm not sure what grades he got.</p>

<p>Do you know where he went or if he was ED or RD? Was your C for second semester or for the year? Did you get any warning about it?</p>

<p>bump. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, this problem has been on my mind for weeks and I've finally come out and asked for help. Anyone with any information, stories, rumors, examples of those who are or have been in my situation please feel free to post because I need all the info I can get. Feel free to post any feedback at all. </p>

<p>To reply to ASAP: I've already talked to my counselor and she strongly believes that I cannot fail (meaning receiving a F or D) ANY class in order to keep my admission. However, she is not sure if that is exactly Cornell's policy, but she suggests that I take no risks. I know for sure that some schools like: GWU do not care about 2nd semester senior year, and so I had hope that maybe... just MAYBE Cornell might overlook my grades as well. I know I'm hoping for the impossible, but then again I can't believe a student like myself is capable of receiving a D in ANY class. Just goes to show you that the impossible is always plausible.</p>

<p>Oh yeah and I think my ulcers have recently returned because of this whole ordeal. My mind is on this issue every waking moment.</p>

<p>Sleeplessly yours,

<p>I don't think your admissions will be might, however, have to write them a letter explaining the grade. I think you should try your hardest to get it up to a C. If you can't do that, you should have your counselor contact Cornell to explain the grade before Cornell contacts you.</p>

<p>bump? i would like some more feedback please. my final exam is tomorrow, i've been studying hard as i have already stated. wish me good luck everyone!</p>

<p>sophomore Garunteed Transfer with a 3.0 GPA is standard rescintion policy. I saw a letter from JHU doing the same thing.</p>

<p>I heard a story of a kid who got in ED and slacked off second semester. He got a few Ds (I'm not sure how many) and wrote his final English paper on why Jane Eyre was a lesbian. He had to write Cornell a letter and started school on probation.</p>

<p>woll thats not so bad now is it.</p>
