    So this semester, my last undergrad semester, was my worst grade-wise. My GPA dropped from 3.89 to 3.76 thanks to B+, B+, B, C. No science classes, I was just finishing my Spanish major so the classes were Portuguese, Spanish Phonetics, Spanish Sociolinguistics, and Spanish-American poetry. Yeah, I wanted to kill myself, but anyway.

    I haven't gotten a C since high school, and no more than one B+ per semester (and usually all A's) as far as grade history.

    I'm waitlisted at two schools with no acceptances. Obviously, I sent my transcripts in before these grades were added once I received the waitlist notification and I've sent a letter of intent, but I am not sure how to go about sending the final transcripts.

    Should I send them in now and just hope these grades don't negatively affect my standing (even though they obviously will), or should I wait until maybe early June to send them and see if I've heard anything back?

    I want to 'show interest,' I just don't want to shoot myself in the foot. :scared:

    I wouldn't send them. Unless they specifically request that you send. If you can come up with another update to send, you could send that (ie volunteering or research related...)
