<p>Physics C has been a nightmare for me this year. I've applied to the school of engineering at several colleges, and have gotten accepted. I'm normally a straight A student but I posted a B in this class this first semester, and will most likely have a C+. All my other grades will be As, or maybe one B+. As a result, I'm thinking about switching my tentative major (if possible) during my first year in college to economics or math. I'm planning on calling the college that I will end up attending (if it is a top private, such as MIT, Duke, Rice, Princeton-not if its a state school) and stating my concern over this grade. Should I admit that I'm not as enthused about engineering as I was at the beginning of this year, and tell them that I'm considering changing my proposed "major". Because I dont want to send in my final report and then get told over the summer that I'm being rescinded.</p>
<p>A C plus probably isn't going to cause a rescindment. A "D" might. Don't bother to provide the college with an explanation.</p>
<p>Check the CC archives for info on what kind of grades caused some people to be rescinded.</p>
<p>Thanks 10 char</p>

<p>No, why? (10 chars)</p>
<p>Do that only if it's a real concern. Usually, majors are not set in stone until the second or third year. So, don't go off changing what you do before knowing what alternative you truly want.</p>
<p>Maybe you're just hitting a tough point in AP Physics C. The calculus involved may be a bit intimidating. As I once joked before, the C in the course name stands for your grade. ;)</p>
<p>No, you won't get rescinded. They take grades in context. They will be able to see why you got a C. It's not exactly an easy course.</p>
<p>Until they say something, there's nothing to worry about. If they do rescind you anyways, you can usually provide an explanation.</p>
<p>Don't sweat it. You'll be fine.</p>
<p>i heard c's are nothing.
d's = bad</p>
<p>I think you'll do just fine. I highly doubt you will be rescinded for a c in Physics C. Again, do not explain anything unless they contact you.</p>
