I don't personally know anyone who has had it happen but our administration said they have in the past revoked acceptances for Cs.

They will, and should, revoke your acceptance due to unsatisfactionary performance.

True.

Especially for all those lazy asses that pushed the hard classes until their last quarter/semester so their GPA wouldn't drop. :rolleyes:

UoP is a competitive school. I bet if you are good enough to get in there, then you are good enough to A's in your last two semesters, but they let you get B's to give you some breathing room.

Anyway if you can't keep a B average in a college semester then dental school will be a real wake-up call for you. My first semester of dental school contained 27.5 credit hours including Biochemistry, Physiology, Embryology, Neuroanatomy, and several dental classes too. Those making below a 3.0 were in the bottom quarter of the class.

hahaha i think it's still a bit harsh to revoke someone with just one C+
but yeah i'm being the usual immature teenager like couple years ago when i had senioritis from high school. just hope they're not too strict, but the class was tough too

How is it harsh to revoke someones acceptance if you followed the prereqs but not the postreqs? There's thousands of qualified people who will take the spot. Nevertheless, best of luck :luck:
