Does USC care about our second semester grades?

    yes, keep them up to par, and make sure to send your end of the year grades in.

    This is what USC Admissions has published about high school senior grades:

    "Strive for A's in all of your classes, and continue to form study groups and to do at least two to three hours of homework every night. The grades you earn in your senior year are extremely important."

    "We will probably ask you to send us your grades from the first semester of your senior year. Remember to reply promptly and keep in mind that we will be looking to make certain you've continued to do well your senior year."

    "Be sure that your final high school transcript has been sent to USC by July. We will review it to make certain you continued to maintain a strong academic record in the spring semester of your senior year."

    I heard keeping a 3.0 was okay.

    They don't, but you shouldn't let your grades drop too much.

    i slacked off majorly and i'm ending up with 5 B's and 1 C+ which was a 79.2... maybe 1 A but i'm not expecting that.
    have i entered the danger zone? :/

    (My opinion from experience with a son who did the same a few years ago...)
    You are fine. Have a good summer.
