Would a 'D' stop me from getting into USC?

<p>I got a 'D' in Honors Chemistry during my junior year. BTW, the grading scale at my school is 77%-84% for a 'C'. So I hope the fact that it's an honors class and the rough grading scale will make it okay.</p>

<p>Do you think this would this stop me from getting into USC? I'm applying to Cinema-Television department, so I'm thinking a single grade wouldn't hinder my chances that much. The rest of my scores look something like this:</p>

<p>GPA: 3.71 weighted, 3.2 UW
SAT: 1350
ACT: 30</p>

<p>Comments are appreciated.</p>

<p>Some of you guys have screwy grading scales. My school goes like this:</p>

<p>90%+ is an A
80-89.9% is a B
70-79.9% is a C
60-69.9% is a D
59% and below is an F</p>

<p>As for your question, I really can't help you much. A 'D' might be tough to overcome, but you may be able to do it.</p>

<p>Doesn't Cinema requiere a supplement, I think it would matter in this case. Do you at least meet minimum requierements?</p>

<p>I meant that your supplement would matter more than your grades.</p>

<p>The avg GPA fro USC apps is 3.99<br>
you are not right in there. the question would have to be "Is the Cinema-Television department more competitive?"</p>
