Help.. GPA problem (high school)

I'm a senior in high school and I just checked my GPA with my guidance counselor.
I have never checked it before, so this is my first time.
I ONLY HAVE A 2,9 GPA......
Is that really bad?
I feel like a retard
I don't get it..when I was a sophmore my average was 88-90..but when I was a junior my average went down to 78-81
Even my brother got 3,2 GPA. (In all honesty, I'm more intelligent than him.)
Is there anything I can do to raise my score? Or is it too late? I'm already a senior.
I heard they only care about your Sophmore and Junior year..

omg im so depressed lol..

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

That's almost a 3.0. That's good compared to me. 2.9 out of 4.0 . Mine was a 2.0 at the end of high school, because I used to cut so many classes. Not great. Don't feel like a retard. In college you can start from scratch.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Think of a 4.0 as an A, a 3.0 as a B, a 2.0 as a C, a 1.0 as a D, and anything below as an F.

So, you're up there but you could do better. Matter of fact, I think I'm failing one of my classes too.

Yeah, you can probably graduate from within a 3.0 - 3.5 average. So you will be up there.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

At this point, if you are planning on applying to a four-year college, there really isn't much you can do, as by the time you get any more grades you probably would have already been accepted or turned away by colleges.

Do you have an idea of what you'd like to do after high school? Community college may be a good choice for you, as when you graduate from there colleges pretty much only look at the CC grades, and don't care anymore about HS. Have you taken the SATs/ACTs yet?

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Unless you intend to try go to some fancy well known college (which you probably already blew sense for anumber of the top well known colleges are probably looking for around a 3.5-4.0) then i wouldn't worry about it. Regardless don't stress over it. Stressing never helps. Just do your very best. I know ITT Techncial Institute doesn't give a crap about your High School GPA they give a performance test when you enroll. Its not all that hard really it merely checks if you can do basic math & reading skills. But should you choose to go there don't worry if your skills in algbra or reading aren't the top of the game.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Yeaa umm I wanna go to Hunter college
According to collegeboard, it says that 32% students there have 2,5-2,99 GPA average
Do u think I have hope?
No my question is, is there anything I can do to raise my GPA score at this moment?
Do they average in your senior grades too? Or only sophomore-junior?

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Your senior grades (and freshman gradez too!) do count in your GPA, but most colleges accept incommung students around February, which does not give them enough time to use your grades from first semester of senior year in their decisions. If you do get amazing grades (all a's that semester then you can speak their decision if you are not accepted to the collect of your choice. A lot may depend on tour SAT or ACT score when deciding enrollment as well.

Having the GPA doesn't always mean everyrhing. My choice college acceppted mainly 2,8-3.2. I had a 3.25 and was still not accepted.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

You will be fine. You are sweating it to much. My friend goes to Hunters College in NYC. Call the admissions office and you will get a straight forward answer. You can probably raise your GPA by the end of this year by a few extra points.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

In Bulgaria,you can always bribe the head teacher (principal) and get a 4.00 diploma.This is not a problem.For example you have a GPA of 2.5 in the most prestigious public school (Pubilc schools are better in Bulgaria) .This does not satisfy you so you move to a private one.As you technically 'pay' the salary of the teachers,you can have the best grades.You learn only 1 year in this private high school,but your gpa became 4.00 .It is illegal ,but in this country everybody with money has his own law.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Well, your GPA is from your grades. A's give you 4.0, B's 3.0, C's 2.0, etc. All your grades are averaged and that gives you your GPA. So if you try a little harder in your classes and up that grade, you will raise your GPA. So lets say you have a C in Science, if you bump it up to a B, even a low B, your GPA will boost up.

In short, increase at least one grade by a letter, i.e. C to B, and your GPA should go up.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

I have a GPA of 6.93. But in Australia, or my university at least, we are ranked out of 8.00.
I need to get a minimum of 7.00 to receive my scholarship. Blah. I have to do an extra politics class over summer. Otherwise I don't get $25 000. I hate politics.

Just thought I would share my annoyance about GPA's with you too.

Re: Help.. GPA problem (high school)

Oh noooo I went to my guidance counselor again today (she's a bitch..she's mad when I asked her the 2nd time..lol) and checked.. This is my GPA:
84.83% -------->rounded up = 85% ----->Converted = 3.0
Top 278 out of 831 (Seniors)
33% top on my class
But eww..that's still low..
My brother got 3.2... idk if he's lying but I've always been smarter then him..
I was probably lazy during my junior year and fucked up my grades (and I got bad teachers too)

Btw my question for now is..
When colleges say they require 3.0 GPA, does that mean above 3.0 -or- 3.0 OR above?
Because if they only accept 3.0 gpa above..I'm doomed.. (It doesn't say 3.0 AND above..it just says 3.0 GPA)
