Where do you want to go, and how much do you want to pay to get there?

Just look at your options and size up your competition and entrance requirements. If you think you're on an edge for a place you want to go, call them up and chat with an adviser.

Most schools will kick you back out if you have more than one failing grades. Check the fine print.

Duke reserves the right to reevaluate you if you get a C on your final report card.

Most schools won't care provided your grades don't really go to hell. For example, getting straight Bs would be fine.

Hey, speaking as a graduate of Enloe, I switche dmath classes my senior year last year to make sure I could pass and graduate. The asshole administration saw fit to put on my transcript, not just my eh grade from my new math class, but the F from the math class I dropped. It killed my GPA.

A week before move-in day my college sent me a letter, not a call, not an appointment, a letter informing me I was officially kicked out. Right now I'm working at my sisters daycare center in the mountains hours away from my home and my friends, not in college and not likely to be until next fall IF that. After so much time, community college looks like the way to go, and nobody knows how long I'm going to have to be there before I transfer into the real university system.

It's not cool. It's not fun. It's terrifying. Don't let it happen to you.

^the last part sounded like an anti drug psa

depends on the college, also the grades you had when you got in.

That really sucks. However, it would have been your responsibility to then call the school and get that worked out. If you properly explained your situation, they likely would have let you back in.

Just a suggestion.

I talked personally with the dean of admission, and it didn't make a whit of difference.
