Once accepted, am I in as long as I graduate?

Postby Nickg415 » Fri Dec 14, 2012 12:39 pm

I have recently been admitted into UPenn ED. My GPA is below their 25%. I still have 2 semesters left and just finished with finals. I am worried I didn't do too well on one of my finals and don't know how it will affect my overall GPA. I wont fail the class and it shouldn't hurt my gpa by much if anything. None the less, having just withdrawn my applications from all other schools and just sent in my initial seat deposit, I am worried they might reverse their acceptance if my GPA drops anymore and I'll be screwed.

You're good. You wont be sending in your transcript for your last semester anyways. Dont worry and goodluck! Also, CONGRATS!

That's incorrect - you will be sending that transcript in.

As long as you don't completely tank the rest of your time in UG, however, you'll be fine. Congrats!

Thanks guys. What would constitute completely tanking my GPA? I might have a gotten a C this last semester but I shouldn't fall a whole .1 or anything. Also I assume I am submitting my transcripts directly to them and my LSAC GPA is lower than my univ. GPA by over .1 of a point. Will this counter any drop or do they convert it to LSAC GPA?
