So I'm a junior, going to become a senior next year and today was my last day of school. I just found out today that my transcript gpa is a 2.5. I feel really ashamed and remorseful that I didn't try harder. My friend advised me to take some online courses over the summer or do a dual enrollment in my local college to raise my gpa. The problem is today was my last day of school and none of the guidance conselors or college advisors were present to answer my questions. Is it recommended that a person with my gpa should take online courses maybe 2 or 3 in my weakest area's to improve my gpa in high school? Is it possible? I do not want to settle for a community college. I'm already studying really hard for the SAT's and will try my best in Senior year to get all 90's. Are there any things that I can do to raise my gpa?
