Letter Grades vs. CR/NC

I'm sure this topic has been discussed in this forum already regarding this situation. However, I just joined this forum and still figuring my ways around it. That being said, would it be wise to take a "CR" for a class that I got a C in or should i just keep the letter grade? Am planning to apply this cycle, and already planned to take the DAT test 8/21/20.

ANY and ALL feedback would be greatly appreciated. I have approximately 10 hours to decide!

Depends on the class. Committees have said they prefer letter grades for pre-reqs. If it's just a random GER-filler class, I'd take the CR/NC. If not, you'd have to think on it. If you choose CR/NC for a pre-req, they'll probably just assume you were on track for a crappy grade so doesn't really make a difference.
