I feel really anxious about applying to colleges next fall. I'm just finishing up my junior year with abysmal grades. I've messed up my past two years of high school (sophomore and junior), being lazy and procrastinating a lot, which has dropped my cumulative down to around ~2.65. Along with anxiety issues popping up here and there and my laziness I feel like a failure and keep digging myself deeper.
My ACT score was a 28 and I still have several chances to improve on that score. I have lots of good teacher references and I feel that other than my academic transcript my applications would be fairly strong.
I'm really just wondering what people think my chances of getting into a school with an act range of 19-26 and a 3.4 Average GPA would be.
I also am open to any advice pertaining to my situation. With only the first semester of my senior year to show vast improvement, how much do you think that would benefit me to say go from C's to A's and B's.
