During this pandemic I had to suddenly adjust to studying online, we have never attempted this before so it was a whole new experience. I struggled a bit during my junior year and it dropped my average. However, my previous report cards show that I am capable of getting high marks. I wanted to know if that one bad grade will affect my application to university?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
So Ree is a great TL DR answer mine will be a significantly longer one.
One B will not crash and burn your application to well known schools.
Also depending on how many lower than average grades you got you might want to look into pass fail. I’ve heard from Yale well known state schools and others that they will not count this very odd year against you and aim to be as accommodating as possible.
Also if any drastic changes were made if you use CommonApp remember to fill out the Covid/Natural Diasters part to explain personal circumstances.
