Hey everyone. I'm a senior this year, and I made a little boo=boo junior year. I got a D in Precalculus.....I know, I know. The best year to get such a lousy grade, right? My transcript thus far has one C from ninth grade, and all As and some Bs. In my application, should I address that D??? Is it going to hurt my chances really badly if I have some solid ECs, recs and good SAT and ACT scores??? I'm freaking out....so please help!

Yes, a D junior year in math will hurt. How much will depend on the schools you are applying to. Is there any possibility you could retake the class? If not, explain it but don't over explain it in your application (i.e., put the blame on yourself not on a bad teacher or something else) and make sure you indicate what you learned from the experience.

where? it's not gonna hurt at a community college and at almost every state school, and most private schools.
I doubt any Ivy/ivy level school will accept you though unless there's something super-unique about you

i figured it wouldn't be a good thing...
so i guess i can just say somewhere in the app that i made bad study choices and got a bad grade, and i learned from my mistakes, etc, etc
i'm not applying to any ivies, but i am looking at some top schools.
think rice, emory....that caliber.
and some good state schools too!
