    So I took a bunch of community college classes while in H.S. However, the first one I ever took was Pre-Calc during my sophomore year. It was summer and I was lazy so I let myself get a big, fat C. It was fine to me because my overall GPA as still high and I got into a great undergraduate. Unfortunately, I recently found out that we are expected to list EVERY college class we've ever taken.

    My undergraduate GPA is decent but adding that big fat C will destroy my science GPA! Does anyone know how much weight Adcoms give to college courses taken in HS?

    Also, I passed the AP Calc BC test so I don't actually have to take calc ever again. I loved the fact that I didn't ever have to take calc again, but do guys think it'd be wiser for me to take those classes in college to prove my math potential? Or should I just work on bringing up the science GPA in general?

    That is the only C I've ever gotten in a college course and it's been haunting me for the last 3 years!

    well, the good news is that they break down your science gpa by educational time period. "high school" is one time period. so the c would stand by itself as being early in you career.
