college acceptance for a 3.0 GPA

<p>I am looking for colleges in Midwest or East coast that would accept students with 3.0 GPA. The extracurricular activities include Speech and debate, high school Baseball and volunteering at various sports camps and attorney at youth teen court. The applicant also helped out in coaching younger sibling's baseball team</p>


<p>Dozens ... maybe hundreds ... would qualify. Standardized test scores, academic interests, large/small/urban/rural preferences, etc., would help.</p>

<p>Agree with annasdad. Also, it would help to know the amount that is affordable to the family.</p>

<p>FYI, there are several 3.0 / B student threads (Jewish B student, Western 3.0, Class of 2012 3.0 etc) on the Parent's Forum that may be helpful.</p>

<p>Oh yeah, and money. Forgot that one. Good pickup, PWM.</p>

<p>SAT is about 2000. 2 scores are about 600 in Math2 and 600 in Chem. Interested in small rural or urban. majoring in either in CS, Arch. or any engineering. Tuition anywhere from 40,000-60,000 a year.</p>

<p>Also, would like to mention that the applicant is going to a very competitive high school that is ranked 61 nationwide.</p>

<p>"the applicant is going to a very competitive high school that is ranked 61 nationwide"</p>

<p>The applicant's own guidance counselor would be the person best able to advise on this issue. He/she knows which colleges/universities around the country have admitted students in recent from that high school who have had profiles similar to that of this applicant.</p>

<p>That piece of information changes quite a lot. My D goes to a highly selective HS, and students with sub-3.0 GPAs routinely get into schools that admit almost no one under 3.5 or so. Agree with happymom - Naviance or the GC is the best source.</p>

<p>With a 2000 SAT, you have PLENTY of options, even if your GPA is lacking.</p>
