Poor GPA/ Moderately High ACT... how can I get some $$$ for college?
Allow me to explain my situation. My Freshman year I was struggling. I ended with a <1 GPA. This resulted in my parents pulling me out of school to do online home school, which didn't work. When I came back to school my sophomore year my GPA was better but still bad, ~2.5. I managed to kick a** my Junior and Senior years with 4.0 and ~4.2 GPAs respectively. Overall, I have about a 2.8 GPA. The last time I took my act I scored a 31. I have several disabilities which have given me trouble in the past. Mainly ADHD and OCD, which made it very difficult to pay attention and caused me to hoard papers and lose important assignments. The OCD has especially given me trouble because intrusive thoughts often distract me from my work and cause me to lose my train of thought. I also have dysgraphia, which is the inability to write coherently due to some sort of brain issue. Sometimes teachers would flat out refuse to grade my assignments or mark answers wrong because they could not read them. Will colleges award me any scholarships at all when my GPA doesn't meet any of their requirements? Is it worth my time trying to explain my situation? Any and all advice is welcome. I appreciate it.
