D in Language Arts AP

MillimpeterMillimpeter Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Hey everyone. I am 90% going to get in 11th grade Language Arts AP this year. Other than that i have 4 A's and 1 B. Im not sure if it may help, but I got 1810 on the SAT and on the SAT 2 i got a 610 in Lit and 650 in US history. My question is, do i have any chance of getting into UCI with a D?

Thank you

    Well, since UCSC flat out rejected anyone with a D in any of their classes this year, regardless of other stats....I'm pretty sure it's not going to fly at UCI, which is more difficult to get into.

    You do not even meet the minimum requirements for UCs if you get a D in Lang. Arts AP when you consider that you need 4 years of English.

    D = Credit to pass high school.
    C = Credit to count towards college requirement classes.

    In other words, you won't be even considered for a UC if you dont make that class up or get it up to a C

    Colleges, especially a school like UCI don't even like seeing Ds on report cards.

    With declining admission due to budget cuts and the economy, you will need the best grades u can possibly get.

    I would raise your GPA/SAT scores too. I got tons of friends with ~3.8G.P.A and 2200 SAT being rejected from Irvine.

    yes you still have a chance
    a friend of mine got a D in AP-USH last year
    made it up during summer school
    and still ended up getting in uci this year

    as long as you make up the course you will meet the UC requirement
