    I guess taking the class P/F wasn't an option?

    Do not get a D! Don't come back to SDN until you take that final. Good luck!

    I think it depends on the school. Some care even about C's, but others just want you to at least pass. Still, I would try to avoid the D.

    right now, i am at a B / C border. i hope to get a B, but genetics is tough as hell. there is a 80% chance or more of me getting a C.

    and mota, you have to send in your grades after you get in.....

    I would kill myself because you have ended your chances of any acceptance whatsoever. Come on? A freakin' C and your trippin'? Dude, you are golden. Don't worry about it (freakin' gunners :rolleyes: ) :thumbup:

    I thought I would get a C in Biochem this term. I worked my ass off studying for the final, made an A on it, and wound up with a B in the class. And this was after making a C, B, and D on the previous tests. You can do it; just study your ass off for the final and ask your prof if it's too late for extra credit (it doesn't hurt to ask).

    Ok I think we might be getting a little too paranoid here. I don't think one C will do anything to erase 3-4 years of work. Just relax and do well on the final. Not the end of the world in my opinion. Good luck.
