On another note, what is wrong with this school when it comes to releasing grades? This is absolutely ridiculous.
A two credit B+ will have a noticeable impact. And you certainly don't have to worry about getting a C in an elective as a 1L; there are plenty of 2Ls and 3Ls who care about the class far, far less than you do, so they'll undoubtedly occupy the bottom of the curve. I don't know what's with grades, last year the 1Ls had almost all of theirs by now.
