Will two C's hurt my chances

Hi Salaheidn - assuming these two courses are not related to your intended major it should not be a problem but of course it would be better to have a transcript without Cs. You should not be discouraged by this and definitely apply to the schools that you are interested in. You still have a very solid GPA (and if weighted GPA it is out of 5 it looks good too - a few schools now use 6 as a top weighted grade). It is important to maintain this GPA going into senior year and focus on some great activities in the next 12 months before the applications start!
Hi guys - I teach AP Calc in my school. In my experience, top colleges are not looking for people with perfect results but rather want to see people taking a wide range of AP classes. It is perfectly normal to do better in certain courses especially when you take so many AP/Honor classes. But it is really important to show good results in the area you plan to study in college as well as back it up with extracurricular activities.
What Are My Chances

Hi Salaheidn - you have a great profile and still have time to improve it before application season starts! What programs are you applying to? We generally don't like to speculate on your chances of getting into particular school but if you are looking at pre-med programs you should try to shadow a doctor and/or look into doing research next summer as it would significantly improve your chances (perhaps you are doing this already?). If you haven't taken SAT do it as well as it could result in a better score than ACT - some people prefer SAT to ACT and end up doing better on it. Again if you are interested in pre-med or bio programs perhaps add JHU and Columbia to your list. Give us a shout if you have more questions!
