    Hello folks,

    It is 2nd semester, senior year, and I am graduating in a week.

    It is true that I had an easy-going last semester, and I was wondering what general guidelines there are for a school to rescind their offer after acceptance.

    All I heard was that you "needed to pass," but what does that mean?

    i think that to be totally safe you should try to achieve grades comensurate with the GPA you had when you applied to the school, as that is the student they accepted. i would assume though that most schools would be alright with a slight drop-off, but i sure wouldn't want to risk anything lower than a C in any classes after all the effort it took to get accepted.

    some schools dont care, some want C's, some want you to maintain similar gpa.
    I saw you are going to Temple. I never even sent in my final transcript of my senior year until about a week AFTER school started.

    They wont hound you. welcome to the club by the way!

    UOP is the exception and like pine88 said, they require B's.

    so if you say in your application that you are expecting to receive your bachelors before you enroll...do they reject you if for some reason you do not get bachelors?

    prolly, theres a long list of people that they can choose to take your spot and it looks better on their admissions statistics

    You would have to have a pretty good reason to not get your bachelors after saying you were going to. it depends on why you didnt get it, but they could take away your offer.

    It depends on your school, and if it is a part of your major or not.
    I know at UCSB you had to get at least a C to pass, and you couldn't get below a C in any of the classes you took for your major. Otherwise the class wouldnt count and you would have to retake it
