    i am taking my pre-req classes at a number of (3 different) community colleges. i took gen chem 1 in one college and got a c in it (it was during my first trimester of pregnancy and many other factors caused a bad grade.) it has been a year since that class and i am going back to antoher community college to continue taking my pre-req classes and i am thinking of retaking that gen chem class for better undrestanding the subject. i will not take any more classes in the first college where i got a C. do i need to report that college on my addsas app? will they find out if i don't? any suggestions?:cool:

    Not to my understanding. I believe that it will be your most recent grade that will count. At some point though, you will have to transfer into a university.

    So AADSAS specifically says to submit all college work. I went to GA Tech for a year and then transferred to a military service academy where they require four years of attendance and no transfer credit. When I decided I was going to transfer I stopped going to classes and ended up with 2 C's. I did retake the clases because I had to and received higher grades.

    I didn't submit the GA Tech transcript but then when AADSAS was reviewing it was returned to me and a message stating I needed to submit all college coursework. They found out because my transcript indicates I went to GA Tech for a year.

    I wish, I could leave out my first 5 years of college...it would leave me with a 3.84 instead of 2.99

    If I left everything except my last year of college, it would leave me with a 3.75 instead of a 2.6-2.7ish a well.

    To OP: I reported three schools (2 CC, 1 4-year)

    Report EVERY school you attend....a C isn't that bad....i quite a few of my grades as some form of a C (+,-) my first two years of college.
