Hi. I screwed around my freshman yr of college and now I have a 1.3 gpa. Im trying to get into this 4 yr college that requires a 2.0 nto enter. What grades and how many classes would I need to reach the 2.0 or higher?
You don't mention how many hours you have.
Lets say you have 34 semester hours at a GPA of 1.3. If you have another year and 34 more semester hours to take at Jr. College you would need a 2.7 average to come out with a 2.0 average.
Admission to college is competitive; just because you meet the minimum requirements does not guaranty you will get in. You really should be aiming much higher than a 2.0 GPA.
What is your jr college's policy in retaking classes? If you retook some of your classes and raised the grade from say D to A or B this would do wonders for your GPA and probably better prepare you for advanced work. Colleges do not like to see students repeat many classes but sometimes raising your GPA with repeats is better than continuing on with a pitiful GPA.
4 year universities are more difficult than community colleges and when you start taking advanced (Jr and Sr level) undergrad classes you will be expected to be more independent and self-motivated. Colleges select the students they believe have the highest odds of success (graduation) and someone who is just squeaking by in JC looks like a poor bet.
So, you're currently standing at about 57–59% (it varies from one college to another)
A 2.0 is 63-66%
So, you have to increase your percentages by a minimum of 10%.
My suggestion? Just do your very best...
B's will raise your grades to a 2.0...that's GPA, not just one semester...A's will do it faster, but are far harder to attain.
I have 18 gpa hours and plan on just taking summer classes at a local community college then trying to get into the school.
