So how much of a death sentence is it to have a C on one's transcript? Basically, I have a couple of them on my transcript. When I entered, I wanted to be a business major and so I took all the business pre-requisites and did crappy. I have a C+ in one hard Psych class (Learning and Behavior) but I can re-take that, though the grade for it won't be in by the time I apply. But I have C's in: Math for Business and Economics Microeconomics Communications and then Learning. Now, those business classes were all lower-level classes. My GPA with those counted is a 3.161, without them counted, it's a 3.48. So HUGE difference. Those business classes really cost me. Also, taking into consideration that they are all lower level, if you calculate only my upper-level GPA, it is a 3.47 (with the C+ in Learning..it would be 3.67 without it) and probably will be closer to a 3.69 after this semester(still with the C+ in Learning, would be 3.81 without it). Psych is a 3.4 but will probably be a 3.7 the way things are going this semester (still with the C+ in Learning). Without the C+, the Psych would be a 3.67 now and would be a 3.85 without it later.) So I feel like those few Cs are dragging me down a lot but there is no way I am re-taking them all, especially since they are useless to me now that I am not a Business major. So basically, my Psych GPA is VERY salvagable, as is my upper-level GPA. Especially if I re-take Learning. However, I feel like my cumulative is shot because I can't make up those three Cs on it. Is that something I should address in my personal statement maybe? Or would that draw attention to it and I should leave it alone?
