    How many C's on your transcript is enough C's to worry about?

    I had 12 Cs resulting from a early 1990's stint with the chronic.

    12 Cs and 1 D here.

    12 interviews and counting, including Columbia, Vanderbilt, Emory....

    I guess that's not enough Cs!

    cerebrus,

    i gotta say though, that it was worth every minute. i had a blast getting those 12 Cs in all sorts of Humanities courses at my local community college. i was a little nervous about that time period as i applied. i thought an interviewer would ask me about why my grades were so sub-par. i mean, would i just tell that them i gettin' green or would i tell them that at that point in my life i didn't realize the importance of self-actualization in order to live life fully. as you could probably guess, i told them something like the latter.

    burn one down.

    I had a stint with the chronic myself, luckily it was while I was in HS so doesn't affect me now. Financial aid probably would have been better if I'd made a grade higher than C my senior year though :laugh: :laugh: oh well it was worth it

    Overall GPA is important, but if you're C's are in pre-med req courses or your major then it could be a problem.

    Sorry to correct you, but it's the chronic. ;)

    I think souljah spelled it out, but the first 3 were some pretty interesting terms.
