Just admit fault. Say that you're too focused on getting into college and you made a large mistake. That you just lost it for a bit and are back on track. Colleges will rather take an apology than an excuse.

Do they have that recent report or do they only have a transcript that was already provided to them because if it just came out a few days ago they may not have that information yet...And GL BTW

No, i have to take it in. So there's no dodging it. Honesty will be my best policy i suppose. That is, if i get there. Snow storms all over my area this morning.
