Will WASHU rescind me?
I was accepted to Sam fox school of art and design as an ED1 applicant. I had 3.5 unweighted GPA until my senior year. However, for my first term senior year, I had one B+, 2 Bs, 3 B-s, and one A-. I was required to submit my first term grade before they made the decision which I'm assuming that they saw my first term grade. I didn't expect myself to get in but I did eventually. And seniorities came in, and my grade somewhat dropped, not significantly. I'm expecting to have one A-, with one or two Bs, and the rest with B-. (BTW the classes that I'm taking right now are mostly APs and IBs with two courses that aren't APs and IBs so weight gpa should be way higher than 3.0) I'm not expecting to have any Cs or C+ (maybe one C+). I heard that WASHU will send my an email regarding my grade if it's below 3.0 UW which is likely to happen. Would WASHU rescind my application?7 replies
