Feeling lost and breaking down
Hello everyone. I'm just another junior in a sea of juniors fretting over college. I feel so lost. I am visually impaired, first generation, and low income. My unweighted GPA is 3.83, and my weighted GPA is 4.46. Also, my GPA shows a downward trend. Compared to my peers who have near flawless academic records and are relatively well off, I feel like the odds are stacked against me.
I live in California, and I will apply to some UCs (I feel I will be rejected because of the downward trend in my GPA, and the UCs only use sophomore and junior year GPAs, but it can't hurt to apply, can it?)
However, I am in desperate need of financial aid, and I know that the UCs will not meet my full need.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what colleges I could apply to?
