Decent University that accepts 2.8-3.0 gpa PLEASE!

<p>So I'm wondering if there are any decent Universities that will gives a chance to a person who has a 2.8-3.0 gpa. I know it's low but i still want to consider other possible choices.
Please and thank you (:</p>

<p>Many if you are full pay. If you need any financial aid it's much, much harder. So we need to understand what your family can pay to begin to help.</p>

<p>Probably some state universities in your home state. Or go to community college, do well, and transfer to one of the more selective state universities in your home state.</p>

<p>People might give you better ideas if you specify your home state, possible major, and cost constraints.</p>

<p>What state are you located? And yes, you will still have some options with a GPA in that range. Can you share your ACT or SAT scores, so I have a better idea of where to consider? Any EC's that will help? Athletics? And what can your family afford to pay each year?</p>

<p>I live in California but i will consider out of state (maybe eastern areas)./ just a thought.
Also i did sat on oct and got 1700, i am planning on retaking my final one on december.
As for the cost, I'm not too sure sorry but i am definitely doing financial aid</p>

<p>Not much :( all i can think of right now
Extracurricular Activities:
* ANC GM (Disabled Community)- For about 3 years, every Sunday (2 hours). I volunteered at the GM Department where we take care of disabled individuals.
* ANC- Nursery Department- 2 years, every Sunday (2 hours)
* World Vision Supporters Club - Representative Staff for 2 years. (Also went to visit the WV H.Q up at Seattle over the summer).
* Leo Club
* One million ways Club
* Summer Camp teacher</p>

<p>Work Experience:
* Dedicated volunteer for GM
* Private Tutoring</p>

<p>You have all kinds of good options being in California! Look at the Cal State site tonight. Your scores are fine! I would definitely take advantage of the CSU system. Look at Sonoma State, Chico, Stanislaus. You can do searches for specific majors you are interested in and also filter by size of school, whether northern CA or southern, urban or rural, etc. But really, out of all the states to be hovering around a 3.0, you are in great shape! tons of good options. </p>

<p>If you want to apply to a University of CA campus, then consider UC Merced. </p>

<p>You can also consider a community college for two years and transfer to a UC under guaranteed admission agreements. Check out the specific UC you may be interested in for more info. (which cc). You can only transfer in as a junior, so you have two yrs. at a cc.</p>

<p>And your EC's are good too :)</p>

<p>There are a number of threads on this topic in the Parents Forum. If you scroll down through them you should get some good ideas.</p>

<p>As a California resident, you are CSU eligible if you meet the criteria listed in the table here:
CSUMentor</a> - Plan for College - High School Students - Eligibility Index - California Residents</p>

<p>GPA for CSU purposes is calculated as described here:
CSUMentor</a> - Plan for College - High School Students - GPA Calculator</p>

<p>Only the CR and M sections of the SAT are used for CSU eligibility.</p>

<p>However, some (not all) CSU campuses and majors have higher standards than the CSU eligibility described above:
CSUMentor</a> - Plan for College - High School Students - Campuses That Have Higher Standards
Impaction</a> | Student Academic Support | CSU</p>

<p>Many of the CSU campuses and majors with higher standards use eligibility index as described here:
CSUMentor</a> - Plan for College - High School Students - Calculate Your Eligibility Index</p>

<p>For example, San Jose State's thresholds last year were:
SJSU</a> Admission</p>

<p>You may want to use a non-impacted campus and major as a safety, or plan for community college followed by transfer as your safety. If you do the latter, use <a href="http://www.assist.org%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.assist.org&lt;/a> to help you plan courses to fulfill prerequisites for your desired majors at your desired UC or CSU campuses.</p>

<p>Another vote for the CSUs. You wouldn't get financial aid at an out of state public or private given these stats.</p>

<p>Your best bet is going to be your closest CSU as they give preference to those in their service area.</p>
