Is it possible to still get into a good college if you have Cs and below or under a 3.0
Because this is literally me rn, the struggle is SO real. Also, I'm in 11th grade so I wanna know if its already too late and I should fling myself into the sun, or if I still have time.
Yes. High school grades are only so important to tell you the truth. You can get into all sorts of colleges by starting at a community college and transferring up.
David recommends the following next steps:
It is possible , but harder work. My best suggestion is go to a community college for two years, work really hard to get those grades up, then apply to the college of your choice. Many people take this route if their grades need work.
Like others are saying, I strongly recommend going to a community college to earn your associates, then transferring to a university. If you can keep your grades up at the community college, you will have better opportunities to get into a strong university, rather than trying right off the bat. However, if you do not want to take that road, definitely work on improving your grades during your last couple of years in high school. If you are honest with your teachers and reach out for help, I am sure they would be willing to give you that extra support that you need. Try talking to your guidance counselor as well, they have a LOT of useful information about plans after high school. Hope this helps!
You're just beginning 12th grade so you do have some time to turn your grades around and raise your G.P.A.. Buckle down this semester and take time to pursue extra help before or after school for any classes that you find that you are struggling with.
If you can find a mentor, that would be a great idea also.
Begin looking at schools that you are interested in and find out what the admission requirements are. Setting goals for yourself is always helpful.
Lastly, work on your communication skills. Be careful of using slang and text talk such as "wanna (want to)"and "rn (right now)". This will be a disqualification on many admission applications.
Best of luck!
