Yes, I hate to say this, but I think there is a very good chance that your offer is going to get rescinded. I actually had this happen to someone I know last year; no fails or D's but over a couple C's. You need to go back and read the conditions of your acceptance letter…...

It is best to call the school. However, since you didn't fail any of those classes, you should be ok.

I told a school that I had dropped 3 classes after I was accepted. I got a call from the dean saying that it was ok. She didn't even ask why I dropped them. (They were 2 upper level science and a lab).

I would say that it depends on the school. My friend applied last year and during his fall semester he got a D in biochemistry in undergrad. He called the school and told them about it and they became hesitant to accept him then. They began to question whether he would be able to hand the rigor of dental school compared to undergrad because of just one course. They told him to re-take that course and try to get a higher grade and have it completed before starting dental school. He's right now in that same dental school as a D1 and doing fine!

So it depends on the school

At VCU the requirement is a C or above, however the requirement probably depends on the school

don't tell the schools. They'll never know.... Until you're required to turn in your transcripts before you matriculate. Then you'll be SOL after the cycle ends and they terminate your seat because you purposely withheld your crap grades. your choice there bud

Wouldn't the school find out regardless when you send your final transcript?

I think each dental school has a different policy. Ucsf definitely cares and the application goes under a secondary review where there is a possibility of your acceptance being changed

I would probably leave the states if I were you. Move to Jamaica and pick up songwriting.

thank you everyone! keep your opinions coming!
I don't know what you're looking for. What other opinions can we, non-adcommers, provide for you? Do you want a step by step process for hacking into your school computers to change your grades?

Plenty people already told you to call the schools, and that is the best advice, so just call the schools and put this thread to rest.

if you are not going to call the school, then you should apply again with those c's.

My acceptance letters all told me to 1. not get any grade below a C and 2. not have any significant drop in GPA. Hope it works out for you BobMarley!

helpful! any more like this? what if the acceptance letter doesn't give anything else besides finishing school and receiving a degree?

and don't tell me to call the schools. I'm sure there are others that have received letters with the above written.

b0bmarley, I can't tell if you're being serious or not, but we legitimately cannot help you any further on this issue.
Each school has a different policy on this. It doesn't matter what our letters say--it matters what yours say.
If you are humble and completely honest about your situation, it will get you further than if you try to hide it.

Glimmer, I think he is looking for comfort in knowing others have had a similar experience with a positive outcome, more than anything else.
