I am a freshman in college hoping to transfer to another college in the fall. my first semster gpa was a 2.8, and my second semester (this semester) I am almost certian ill get a 4.0. When looking at my application, do you think admissions counselors may find this weird? The reason I got a low gpa first semester was because my dad died.
