IB Diploma with a few C’s on the report card

I will graduate with an IB diploma, but have 2-3 C’s on my report card, mostly freshman year. Will this hurt my opportunity to get into a top public university? Other than freshman band, every class I took was honors, AP, pre-IB, IB or AICE. Thank you!

Based on the fact that all of your classes have been very challenging and you have an upwards grade trend, I don’t think it will harm your chances of being accepted into college. They’ll see you grew from the Cs you got earlier in high school and also see that you got As in much harder classes.
