    Hi guys,
    during my freshman year in college, i've been getting C's and B's. so lets say that this year i get 3 B's and 1 C and that is a elective. would it count as an improvement to my gpa? will admission committee look at it as improvements?



    thanks

    That's not an improvement since those are the same grades you've already been getting. You need to be getting a lot more As.

    No, because it's not an improvement.

    C's are still C's. Adcoms like A's.

    Adcom's love A's!!!!!! :D

    Just try a little bit harder and spend more time on your classes. If you can show an upward trend (mostly A's) in your junior/serior year of college... you should be good.

    Good luck,
