<p>Will a D on my 2nd semester average affect scholarships and getting into college?
I just found out today that I got a D in chemistry on my second semester average......This was really upsetting, especially since I only get A's and B's on my report card. I started off strong in chemistry at the beginning of the year (straight A's), then second semester came around...and I started having a lot of trouble with the material, no matter how much effort I put in. I was able to get my grades up to a B third quarter and fourth quarter though.......but then I did HORRIBLE on my chemistry final exam, and that affected my 2nd semester grade (ending up with a D)....my year average for chemistry was a B though.</p>
<p>A lot of people said to not worry about it too much because I'm not planning to major in science or anything.....and they also said that they look at consistency more than just one bad grade (because it was ultimately only my final exam that affected my semester average)...but I don't know to what extent that's true.</p>
<p>I'm really worried that this one D will affect my chances of getting into the college I want to.....and also applying to scholarships.</p>
<p>This was also my last year to do really good (since I'm a junior)...and my counselor said colleges don't look much at senior year.</p>
<p>So anyways...what I'm asking is. How much is this one D going to affect me? Is it going to ruin my chances of getting into the college I want to? And is it going to ruin my chances for scholarships? -_-</p>
