How do the colleges even look at GPAs?
I had a 3.67 GPA first semester in Junior year,
and then a 2.67 GPA second semester.
Would the colleges look at the GPA in each semester individually? Or is there a total GPA--I think cumulative, but I don't know how to calculate it...
Also, does the first semester of Senior year affect my GPA, so I can have a chance of raising it?
I'm interested in going to Calstate Fullerton, or Calstate Long Beach. What are my chances of getting into either of these colleges with the GPA I have? I haven't gotten my SAT scores, but what other things do they take into account besides GPA and SAT scores, that I should perhaps focus on to boost my chances and compensate for my downfall in second semester.
