Senioritis Worries - Will my offer get be rescinded?

Edit: Oops, meant "Will my offer get rescinded?" My bad.

I was accepted into DU through early action, and received 10k / yr. in scholarship money. However, my grades slipped drastically this semester and I am extremely worried that I'll be left without options come next fall.

I had a 3.3 prior to my senior year, and this semester I'll probably end up with a dismal ~2.8

I have no F's or D's, though.

What are the chances I'll have my offer rescinded?

    Depending on your major, you could be in trouble. My son has a 3.3 GPA UW and a 24 ACT with good ECs and he got deferred from EA as a business major. Perhaps if you could give more stats background and major, you might be ok.

    I have not declared a major, and my scores are much stronger than that (30 ACT / 1990 SAT). I know the business school is much more competitive.

    I have good EC's as well.

    Those GPA scores I listed are also unweighted.

    I feel like the situations between getting rescinded and getting accepted through EA are not really comparable though.

    You might be okay. Only thing you can do is hope for the best and keep things going in the right direction. DU is a good school (I'm a grad) but there are many other choices out there.
