What are the chances that I might get rescinded from a Cal State school?

What are the chances that I might get rescinded from a Cal State school? Topic: High case scenario
June 25, 2019 / By Keren-Hapuch
Question: I just got accepted into CSU East Bay, but I currently have a D- in my AP Calc AB class and I'm not sure if I can raise that to a C by the end of the semester. So worst case scenario is that I get a "D" in the class and I drop it next semester. Will that make CSU schools to rescind my application? Just in case you were wondering, I do have the 3 minimum required years of math for CSU schools. This calc class was supposed to be the fourth year of high school math for me.

You only need 3 years of math to graduate and then after that, you take what's called an ELM test and it places you in a math class that you are allowed to take at a maximum, but of course are allowed to take anything lower than such. If you score high enough on your SATs or pass your AP, then you won't have to take the placement test and they automatically allow you to register for something higher. Try your best to raise it to a C but if it doesn't happen, I wouldn't be TOO worried. However, it is getting harder and harder to get into a CSU nowadays so be careful. ^^

@Hello Me! You are far to optimistic, these are difficult universities to get into and a 1480 is an exceedingly low score. Cappex is known for inaccurate and out of date data, so I certainly wouldn't trust your assessment. The average SAT score for an accepted Michigan Engineering student is 2130 which means that his score is some 650 points below average. Needless to say, that's a huge deficiency. I recommend you retake the SAT and I would also recommend you try the ACT as well. The fact of the matter is that a 1480 SAT score with a 4.0 UW GPA tells the university that there is something wrong with your schools grading system, and that it may be too easy to get an A at your school. I noticed that you did not mention you SAT score breakdown. Some top schools such as U-M (at least in the College of Engineering) will only look at your critical reading and math sections on the SAT and then get a score out of 1600 to use for admissions. Maybe this will help you a little if you did best in those sections, but I would still recommend you retake and try the ACT.

Dude don't freak just retake the SAT's in the winter session. Look on Collegeboard.com and see the date to take it. Also consider applying to a school that doesn't make you hand in your SAT's. Then write about how hard it is at your military school and being an ESL student. You'll be fine I swear

Ignore the naysayers. Based on 2011 admision data, you have a very good chance of getting into the University of Michigan with an SAT score of 1480. http://www.cappex.com/page/account/creat... No doubt, you're in-like-flyn.
