No, I clearly saw some evil devilish intent behind those eyes.

I wasn't blowing it off- just didn't have the time to get my act together before the deadline. My acceptance letter only states that I need to submit a transcript verifying that I graduated before August. My final GPA is higher than the one I was admitted with.
Do you see any potential for this grade to be a problem/is it possible my school will rescind its offer? Would you send a letter or let it go?


I'll be honest this story seems off. First off though you should know that the school gets to make the decision and we just give you our experiences thus far - you can't quote us as "telling" you when you talk to the school. Generally, people get C's and don't get offers rescinded, but your case may be different. Your original post makes it seem like you didn't even do a thesis, is this correct? If so, how did you get the C- if you didn't even do the thesis? That may bother schools if someone happens to ask to see your thesis, only if you made a big deal about it in your applications, and you don't have it.

I couldn't see the grade causing a problem, but if you got the grade without even doing the work then that is just a school failure and may bite you.

No way his school is going to care about this.
