I got a C- in freshman year Algebra I… and then a C in sophomore year Algebra II. I struggled with a few mental health issues outside of school…hence the grades.
Anyways, I’m planning on applying to colleges as a Linguistics or Cognitive Science major. My overall GPA is nothing amazing, just a 3.6 unweighted. I’m looking at schools ranging from Brandeis and Bucknell (30%-ish acceptance rates) to schools like UVM and UNH (65-75% acceptance rates.
Anyways, I’m still waiting on my test scores (SAT), but I might consider going test-optional since my school (along with nearby schools) canceled some testing dates due to COVID.
I’m getting an A- as a junior in geometry right now, so hopefully that nasty C trend is over (knock on wood…). On top of that, I have a 3.9 unweighted as a junior, so there is an upward trend (I had a 3.4 freshman year).
Will these two C’s hurt me?
