The grades that you receive during your senior year are very important. Mid-year reports are often sent out before any decisions have been made at the colleges you applied to so if they see your grades slipping, it may give them cause for alarm. Also, final senior grades are required at the colleges you apply to so if your GPA falls lower than a whole point or if you receive any non-passing grades such as a D or F, it’s very likely that any colleges that accepted you will rescind on their offer. Worst of all, if this happens, they may not notify you of it until July or August. Most importantly, however, maintaining good grades isn’t just about getting into college. It also shows that academics really matter to you and that you’re always challenging yourself to do your best.
