Hey I just graduated in December from college. My undergraduate GPA was around 3.8. However, the very last semester (after I had been accepted by a couple of places) my grades slipped. I got 1 C and 3 Bs (my one and only C in all of undergraduate), none of which were in the premed classes. All of them were senior level engineering courses. Needless to say, this was (by far) my worst semester gradewise in college. I went to too many interviews and missed a lot of class, which really screwed me over in the end. I know that a lot of schools reserve the right to reject you if your grades slip. But how often do they actually exercise that? I have some extinuating circumstances, will they accept any excuses or will they not even let me discuss it with them? Specifically, I'm looking at WashU, Penn, Yale, and Hopkins. Does anybody know or have stories about people getting accepted and then getting their acceptance rescinded due to grades? My grades werent THAT bad... i would be absolutely incensed if they pulled my acceptance because of this.
