Discus: What Are My Chances?: January 2003 Archive: Freshman seeking guidance

Sorry, I know this is for juniors and seniors...but I just want some advice from people who've gone through college applications.
My question: Would two C+'s really make your college transcript look bad? I've only taken 1 sport and 1 club, and I feel like a really wasted my freshman year...

well, all colleges like to see improvement and dedication. this is my suggestion; get all A's(or as close as possible ) next yr, work ur ass off for them, also stay in this one club and 1 sport, and possibly join another sport or club or community service activity. good luck!

No man it's alright. Don't worry about it. Just begin to hustle more. It's only your Freshman year. Work harder in the future. You have many more chances to improve yourself academically. Don't waste them.

Good Luck from a fellow Freshman

I got a C+ in sophomore year english, and I was accepted to Cornell early decision. So obviously it's not horrible. But I also had a great improvement in junior year.

Yeah, your college life is pretty much over now. But if you push real hard for the next few years you just might get into a nice community college, and get a cozy job at a newspaper stand.

jive turkey is an idiot. ignore his post. maybe b/c hes headed to community college with his 700 SAT hes lashing out at the world.

first of all get a C might not ruin your chances. it all depends on what kind of school you want to go to. ivy? top25? top50? tier 2? look at that factor

i dont think colleges would mind much. high school is a big transition from middle school and with it being ur first yr and all i know college adcoms would understand.
