To be quite direct, a 2.0 grade point average is not good, but that does not necessarily mean that you will not get into a college that suits your needs and desires. As already mentioned, SAT/ACT scores are equally important, and they may demonstrate intelligence that is not reflected in your GPA. Naturally, many things can factor into a not-so-great GPA: personal issues, medical issues, family situations, or just a poor work ethic that a student is looking to rectify once he/she gets into college.
Nonetheless, your GPA and SAT/ACT scores are merely the quantitative aspects of your application. The qualitative aspects can be just as important. Some schools may want an army of 4.3 GPA, 1550 SAT automatons accounting for the composite of the campus; however, other schools, especially liberal arts colleges, look for what you can bring to the collegiate table that is unqiue, creative, different. Essays are the best place to shine when it comes to this. Also important is extra-curricular activity. Undergraduate study is not suppose to be merely for geniuses who wish to make scholarly pursuits their life-long occupation. If you have anxiety over your GPA, funnel that energy into areas that will improve the qualitative portion of your application.
Most importantly, have fun with the application, and make the most of your college experience, wherever you go.
No, Its not that bad, its OK GPA
No. A 3.0 GPA is a B average. So it is a good GPA

X/20-1 ,71/20-1,=2.55 GPA
Depending on the university, you may get in with a 2.5 GPA and a 20 on the ACT.
Its actually really bad.
no it is not bad at all
Yes, particularly if that is your weighted GPA; in many schools and universities, a GPA below 2.0 is considered failing.
I guess it depends on how bad your GPA is. You could try applying to some schools and see if you could get in. I suggest you talk to your counselor about it.
you are a tool for asking this
On a 4.0 scale with 4.0 being the highest, a 3.8 GPA is very good.
Not bad. It is a high B or B+.
Not bad. It is a low to middle B.
75 out of 100 is neither a good nor bad percentage. The commutative average as a GPA would be 2.0.
according to the college board 78% get in with a 3.0 or higher.http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/CollegeDetail.jsp?collegeId=3818% had h.s. GPA of 3.75 and higher19% had h.s.

a 2.5 GPA is ok, it can be 4.0 or more with all a's and extra credits. but it's about a c+.
well its hard to get on a football team with that bad of a GPA
College prep courses are not weighted, so your gpa, both weighted and unweighted, is a 3.34. The only way to get above a 4.0 is to take either honors or AP classes. If its bad or not depends on what kind of school you want to go to, and remember, colleges don't only look at gpa, they also look at standardized test scores (SAT and ACT) and extracurriculars.
Considering that a GPA of 4.0 would be the equivalent of 100%, having a GPA of approximately 3.0 as yours is would be similar to having an average of 80% in all courses via the GPA scale. So it is decent and is acceptable. So whether it is "Good or Bad" is subject to your discretion depending on your personal values in excelling.
it is really bad you need to work harder
Let me just tell u its bad
2.667 is not bad its like an 80 adverage
It is not a bad idea to go to college with a 2.203 GPA. In fact, many colleges allow admission with a minimum 2.0 GPA and good SAT or ACT scores. Community college is another great option for two years, which will allow you to transfer to a top university with a good GPA and grades.
No, the GPA is calculated separately. However, if you're trying to recover from a bad GPA in high school, having a good GPA in community college will be a valuable asset if you plan on applying to a four-year school.
A 3.4 GPA is not bad. It means you have mainly B's but a few A's. It is still above average.
