Unless you're applying to Yale, you should be fine. As long as your overall GPA isn't abysmal, I don't think 1 mediocre grade is going to lock you out.

I hope not, anyway. I have 2 C grades 8)

I had a C and a few B-s (with the rest of my grades being As and some A+s). I was waitlisted at Y/S, and in everywhere else, including full scholarships at all of CCN. Make sure the rest of your grades are good and you'll be fine.

A C here (senior year no less, didn't address in addendum), plus plenty of Bs. Didn't seem to make a difference.

Pretty sure that, if real, his success resulted from some damn good soft factors in addition to a sky high LSAT.

I got a 180 on the LSAT. My GPA ended up being around a 3.75. I think I had above average soft factors (consulting W/E, some relatively involved campus leadership roles), but nothing ground-breaking and nothing particularly academic (to which I attribute my Y/S dings).

If the study abroad grade doesn't appear on your UG transcript, you're not required to send in the foreign transcript as long as you have less than one year of coursework there.
