Final semester grades: cause for worry?

I was waitlisted at UW and received my "acceptance" letter today (or offer of admission). I had all A's (one A-) first semester. This last semester I feel like I pretty much bombed, and I am wondering if I'm in great danger of having my offer of admission revoked.

Grades:

Advanced Drawing: C- (<--- This is a one-semester class)
AP Spanish: A
AP Statistics: A
Chemistry: B+
CWI (Current World Issues): B+
AP Lit/Comp: B

ETA: Not that I expect many people to know this, but does anyone know how soon one would find out if their admission has been revoked?

Ughhhh. I really hate myself right now. (And that art class.)

    I wouldn't worry about it. I had the worst grades of my CC career in Winter quarter 2010 (got a VERY low C in a math class, like a "barely even a C" grade . . . man, I hate math), sent in my Winter quarter grades right after I got them, before UW had made a decision, and I still got in.

    Frankly, I can't see them carrying that much about Cs in Pottery or Drawing.

    B's are no danger at all, my CC transcript has a liberal dose of B's.

    Only the UC system is anal enough to rescind students over a single C

    CARING that much, I meant CARING.

    This is why I shouldn't post when I'm tired!

    Wouldn't worry too much about it. Revocation is considered mainly when you get C's and D's for a majority of your classes.

    What if you got one F, but all of your other grades are good?
